No I mean an adapter thing that would plug into the SATA for the cd drive and turn into a pci/express slot for an Egpu project I have in mind.

No. SATA and PCI Express are not interchangeable.

Are you talking about a PCI card with SATA hookups on it? I have seen those for desktop PC's, but not for laptops.

Express Card is a combination of PCI Express and USB 2(/3). A SATA port is not PCI Express or USB.
