So when I install an SSD (without Windows 10 installed) on a computer that previously had an HDD (with Windows 10), and when installing the new SSD to the computer and then plugging a USB with a Windows 10 installer, is it necessary to buy another activation code for Windows or does it keep that activation code in the computer?

If you are not changing your motherboard then you dont need to worry.

On a new drive, in the same system..incurs no licensing issues.
