I wanna customize a Thinkpad W530, but when it comes to Optical device: 2nd 320GB HDD, 7200rpm with Bay Adapter, what does Bay Adapter look like?
Is it ThinkPad 12.7mm Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter III, Part number:0A65623 ,
please see the detail on http://shop.lenovo.com/us/itemdetails/0A65623/460/
Could anyone who got the W530 help me conform that? Your kindness will be appreciated.

Its always fun to customize your computer to better suit what you want to do. I came across your post and found this on the support site talking about your bay adaptor. I hope this information can help you make a more informed decsion.
I hope this help you!

Yes, that's the detailed specs on the support site for the Ultrabay III drive tray. This fits W520 and W530, along with T420/T430 and T520/T530. Looks like we just haven't updated that page to reflect the compatibility with the new models at time of this post.
Note: the T420s and T430s require a slimmer unit, and if you use the T420s or T430s bay or optical in the other T and W's you will have a gap.
