You're half way there,

You also need a SATA power cord

the above cable in the link is wrong as it doesnt go in, since the hard drive has that dent,
can you please tell me exactly which cables i  should get ?

Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

not sure, hope @Square can advise ?
Should be good,

I just want you should plug it in for a short time, and tell me what it does and how it sounds.

@Square do you think it's worth buying a cable just to diagnose? (Chances are it won't fix anything)

He wants to do it himself, there is a chance that it's just the enclosure.

That's always the first thing I try, never had a successful fix from that.
Has it ever worked for you?

Nothing is gone yet, we need to go step by step.
