If the card has a 6-pin power connector, then it needs a 6-pin power connector. They wouldn't put it there if it was optional. As for the adapter situation, I would stay away, even from those Molex to PCIe ones. The cables used for these adapters are often not designed for the high current being pulled. It's just a recipe for disaster or exciting fires.

Yolo.

Should you do it? No, probably not.

Are you likely to break something with the adapters? Also no, EVGA says here that sata connectors can do 54 watts.

Depending on where you get such cable. If it's direct from a trusted OEM like EVGA, then sure (still worrisome). 5 bucks off Amazon or Ali-Express? Have 911 ready on speed dial. And order one of these while you're on Amazon:
