It's totally possible! I used fans, taken from an old pentium cpus ! just hot glue them to the underside of the upper grill and hook them up! (just make sure you put them in the correct way arround so it pushes air out the top). no modifications to the case needed aside from closing off the rest of the upper grill so there's only one spot for the hot air to go.... out through the fan!!. just glue, no screws. and hot glue can easily be picked off if you need to move/remove them at a later date.

yep that's fine. i think you can get fans with molex connectors. but molex are big and bulky and can get in the way. depends on your situation and future choice on mods.

anything that'll fit! cpu fans, case fans ... any fan that is a slim profile. 12v or 5v. just make sure you use the correct wire from the floppy connector, there are 4, two are black (negative) and one brown and one yellow. i forget which are which for 12v and 5v... someone else will no doubt chime in on this one. but if your floppy splitter cable was bought and has all four wires going to the molex (which i assume it has as 3.5 inch drives need them) then simply sourcing a fan with a molex connector will suffice
