is there any possible way to turn a usb 2.0 and get the speed to 3.0 or is it a physical thing in the hardware itself. I'm just wondering if possible usb 3.0 isnt super expensive so i could just buy it

No, it's a different physical chip (nowadays, newer logic in the chipset to be precise) and more wires in the cables. If you don't have a USB3 board you can get a PCIe card.

It is possible only with the appropriate PCI card.- the USB 3 controller is different from the USB 2 controller, and a hardware change is necessary. It cannot be done by software alone.
