I have been team xbox for a long time but decided ot buy a wii-u. I want to play some of the backtitles that came out on the wii. I know i have to buy wii software to play but I never liked the nunchucks. Can I just buy a normal controller like this:

It varies from game to game whether you can use the classic controller or not. For most titles, the answer is no. You need wagglan. All virtual console titles support it, though.

As for the adapter, yes, it should work.

For all of those, yes. Except I think Xenoblade can be played with a classic controller.

I wouldn't know, since it's so EXPENSIVE WHY I WANT TO PLAY IT SO BAD!

The one you linked to is best for Xenoblade. Otherwise you'll need a Wiimote + Nunchuck. I really hope they release a firmware update that let's us use the Wii U Pro Controller for Wii games, I don't want to have to buy three more Classic Controllers just to play Smash Bros.
