Question about the Akitio Thunder 2

I have some questions about the Akitio Thunder 2:

- Can I use 2x  Akitio Thunder 2's on my Macbook 13inch Retina Early 2015?
- Does these 2 GPU's fit into the Akitio Thunder 2: MSI Radeon RX 560 AERO ITX 4G OC and ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mini?

And another question that not about the Akitio: 
                   Is it possible to get a USB-C (NOT Thunderbolt 3) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter/converter?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

My best guess without diving too deep as I have node lite (which I believe is same case dimensions)

1) yes will probably be recognized, but might not accelerate how you would like it to.
2)yes I think both of those will fit (PM me if you would like to buy either of those GPUs and/or a node lite w/power upgrade and eGPU firmware mod)

3) anything is possible but I haven't ever looked for one.

PS stick with 10.13.6 if you want to use Nvidia
