Yes, buying a controller that comes with its own receiver will ensure that it will work.
Wireless input devices come in three main types -
One type uses RF and comes with its own receiver, as with the majority of wireless mice. This type comes as a matched pair and cannot be interchanged with other pairs.
The other two types are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. These can be linked to existing standard receivers.
What I'm not sure about is which type is most commonly used for game controllers. Hopefully someone who knows will chime in.

Nope, your motherboard doesn't have Bluetooth.
What you can do is get a USB Bluetooth dongle, or get a wireless controller with its own receiver dongle. It's not my area of expertise. There will be others in a better position to advise.
