Recently I learned that internal 3.5" hdd need additional power that the usb to sata cord alone cannot provide. Would this cord double plugged or even plugged into a 12v adapter suffice? is one data and one power? Interchangeable? Aloha and mahalo!!!

It's not working with 3.5", see the review.
Aloha.

3.5" HDDs need a separate power source. That type is also available here e.g. SKU 9636558

This "docking station" SKU 6787301 is surprisingly cheaper than the above solution. I have one of these, bought elsewhere (Orico) & more expensive than this.

Unless you're looking for the most portable solution I find the "docking station" works very well for 3.5", 2.5" HDDs and SSDs.
