my motherboard slot only supplies 50 watts to the gpu. Could I use a 75 watt gpu like a gtx 1050 ti low profile or a gtx 1650 low profile if I used a cable to connect it to the power supply.

no.
cards that need more power will NEED that 75W from the slot. even with a power cable to the card it will not have the base 75W it needs
you will be limited to cards like the gt 1030 and other low power 30W cards
