You only need the female adapter. It plugs into the back of the Amiga. The monitor cable plugs into the adapter. The monitor cable should come with the monitor (in most cases the cable even is fixed to the monitor and cannot be removed).

Be aware that, as the linked page describes, with such an adapter you can only display special screen modes. You need to set up such a screen mode before you change the monitor. You will not be able to display the early startup menu any more. You will not be able to display games started from floppy disk. You will not be able to display whdload games. You will not be able to display games or applications which do not allow to select a screen mode. And most important, if your harddisk crashes, you will not be able to boot Workbench from floppy disk unless you change the disk's preferences to a suitable screen mode.
