Shipping wouldn’t be too bad, since it’s a very small and light part.

Yes, you’d need that adapter as well.

You will need to use an Unix program that understands the Newton docking protocol, such as NewtonLink [1] or UnixNPI [2].

[2] http://unixnpi.sourceforge.net/

There are a few other options as well. Refer to Reinhold Schöb’s “Newton and Linux Mini How To” ... note that some of the links on that page will be dead.
