    I hear the new 2013 MBA SSD have really fast Read/Write Speeds, same goes for Retina Pro SSD and I was wondering if there was a way to install these flash SSD in a CMBP, if there was some sort of adaptor tray for it to fit in. If so I would probably go down this route instead of a samsung 840 pro or something equivalent.

    not possible at all. different connector, different wiring, different protocol

    Even if you did find a SATA to PCI-E adapter, it would still run at SATA speeds since you can only go as fast as the slowest component.
