is it possible to SAFELY convert from something like a SATA connector to a PCIe connector?
i see these converters are for sale but are they safe to use?

Buy a NEW reliable power supply unit that has 2x 6+2 PCI-E connectors.

No, you cannot use a SATA connection to power a GPU.
If your PSU does not have the needed power and connections for the GPU, you need a new PSU that does.
