    No, you need 2.5" S-ATA HDDs, and the one you linked to is a 3.5" S-ATA HDD, made for desktops.
    Maybe MacSales or Newegg can help you.

    The 3.5" HDD is the one on the bottom, the 2.5" HDD is the one on top of the 3.5" HDD.

    No. You need a 2.5 inch drive. That one is 3.5.

    As previously stated, you'd need a 2.5-inch Serial ATA (or "SATA") hard disk for your Mac, such as a Seagate Momentus like the one found at the following link on for example.

    One thing to keep in mind is the rotational speed of the disk - with an increase in rotational speed (for example, 7200 RPM) you may notice slightly more noise or vibration coming from your computer when compared to a disk spinning at 5400 RPM.
