Question Swap 2 Second HDD's

Hi when I bought my Computer I had to save up some Money so I just bought 1 SSD as main drive and used an "old " 128GB HDD as Second drive. Now I need more memory space for my games and I found another "old" 128GB HDD. Would it work if I would install for example Games A and B on HDD-1 and games C and D on HDD-2 and then just swap them depending on the game I want to play (On both HDD's there wont be an OS or driver or anything like this, just Steam and Origin or other games). And I know that the best solution is to just buy another SATA cable and connect both of them, but I just want to know if this swap thing works.

"Swap thing" works, but you'll have to turn off your pc to do the swap - every time.
Just get the cables.
Okay so then I'm gonna buy a Cable but just out of interest is it better to separately install Steam/ Origin on the HDD's or should I install it on my SSD and just create an Origin/Steam Library on the HDD's.
