Its kind of older an needs an upgrade from the hdd, will it handle sata3? is that even an issue or is that just mean it will not run as fast if my computer is slower than the ssd? I know the hdd has a sata cable on it right now.

ok but does that mean I need to find an ssd that is sata2? or can I get a sata3 and it will be fine with no connection/recognition issues?

Any SSD should work, the speed/bandwidth available will be limited to that of SATA 2 interface(approximately half as much bandwidth as sata 3). Will still be faster than a regular HDD.
