Assuming you have a 1.8" SSD and want to connect it via USB to transfer the OS across then you will need something like:

But given you have a couple of USB drives, and assuming you have access to a CD/DVD drive, I would download a copy of redo and burn the iso to a CD:
Boot from the CD and use redo to backup the existing HDD onto an external USB drive (backup ALL partitions). Swap out the HDD for the SSD, this is straightforward, get the hardware maintenance manual:

Boot redo again and use it to restore the images you've backed up to the new SSD. If you find you have a system that doesn't boot (happened to me when I changed the SSD in my T430*), then use boot repair (something else to download and burn to CD):
All the tools I've pointed you at are linux (don't use windows anymore), but will work backing up, restoring or fixing boot problems with win7.
You don't need to make any changes in the BIOS.
And welcome to the wonderful world of Thinkpads. I've had them for at least the last decade, rock solid, reliable, built like a brick sh*thouse. Wouldn't consider anything else.
Forum etiquette - you asked a new question and should really have started a new topic and not tagged it onto another post. For next time...
* It's a couple of years since I swapped out the SSD in my T410 for a larger one and don't remember having problems with it not booting.

You can read my prior comment if you need the discs. As for win 8, I've never seen one that shipped with 8, but leftovers may have been bundled with win8 upgrade, if you can call it that. I'd recommend sticking with 7.
