What's the thing called to hold HDD and let us slide it into slot? Is it safe

without one? I thought it would come with my new HDD however it doesn't. Can we just put the HDD anywhere? Same with SSDs?

You can put it anywhere you like as long as the circuit board underneath the HDD doesn't touch anything and it doesn't move around while in use.

Some cases just let you screw the HDD in. SSDs usually require a mount as a 2.5" don't usually fit in a 3.5" bay

Might wanna post pics.

Some cases use rails (often without screws) or trays but many older cases simply use screws to hold the HDD in place.

There's no real standard.

I think you're talking about SATA backplanes that you can fit into your 5.25" drive bays for easy HDD hot swap.

Here are my recommendations to you:
