im planning to buy this kind of ssd (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32952436302.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.780277f8ykhZh3&algo_pvid=31484315-da10-405f-8292-fe3696e45cb0&algo_expid=31484315-da10-405f-8292-fe3696e45cb0-18&btsid=14523651-c598-410a-92c4-d69199db28f5&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_1,searchweb201603_53 ), and the spec page of my laptop (asus s550ca) from the offical asus website says the it has 3gb ssd cache (my model doesnt have ssd cus my computer has not detected other storage devices other than the hdd and the cd drive). so i want to put the kingston msata ssd in that slot. will it work?

Check length. Your mSATA socket may be only half-size and a full-size device won't fit. Although looking at this picture you should be okay with that specific laptop.
on the link that i gave is the disassembly of the laptop. i noticed there are two more holes at the top of the screws of the ssd so i thought i can put a full sized there. and what kind of screw do i need in order to mount them? because i have no screws to mount it flat

Yes, based on the picture from your link there are holes for a full-length mSATA drive. You actually need two things: stand-offs and screws. The existing stand-offs may or may not be movable; based on my link it had to be modified so you probably need stand-offs. The screws should be the same as M.2, so CM2x3-3.3, although you can use the existing screws. You'll probably have to mod a stand-off/peg as in my link.
