Hi, jacky711, and welcome

What do you mean, "the normal 2242 m2"?
Cache SSD 16 GB in the T450s has m.2 form factor and is 22x42 mm in size. It's an usual size for such drives.

Kingston SSDNow mS200 drive has mSATA formfactor, it differs from the m.2 one. So, it can't be fitted into the m.2 slot, either for the cache drive or wwan/ssd devices.

WLAN card means the card for access to the WiFi networks, WWAN card (also usually named "wwan modem") is for access to the Mobile Broadband Networks, cellular operators offer (3G, LTE).

If you don't believe me, do it for the official Lenovo manuals.
The quote from the T450s parts list:
FRU 04X4456 - SSD 16GB SanDisk M.2 2242 U110-16

Now compare with the drive on the photo.

The T450 has the ability to utilize as much as 4 SSD drive all together if you happen to require that many storage options. It has a single standard SATA 3 connector for a 2.5 inch HDD or SSD and it also has 3 m.2 SATA ports which are all capeable of installing an NGFF m.2 SSD (22x42 is the size supported for all three ports). One port is the NGFF port for the Wireless AC + Bluetooth card, the other port is designated as the WAN port if you purchased an lte card it will be in that slot otherwise the port is empty. The last port is an attachment which is designated for a 16 GB SSD cache drive option if you bought the device with a standard HDD. This port is only capeable of 3 GB/s transfer rates compared with the 6GB/s that the other 3 ports can achieve. 

 

So if you don't need a cache drive, an LTE modem, or the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth car that came with the device and instead you out for a USB adapter for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and theoretically you have the ability to install four separate solid state drives inside of this device. Be advised that pcie nvme is not supported in the t450.

 

I happen to have this verry device and I am utilizing the LTE port as well as the add on m.2 adapter for dual Samsung Evo m.2 SSD drives (Both are 500 GB) and in the standard SATA port I have another Samsung Evo 2.5" 1TB SSD. The wireless/Bluetooth card remains in the final m.2 slot. Everything functions beautifully and the 3GB/s slot is still faster than any m.2 SSD that's supported in this device is capeable of achieveing so it's like the other two ports in terms of it's functionality.

You seem to be describing m.2 slots in a T450.  This is a T450 -s- thread.  A quick look at the base specs seems to indicate that your comments apply to the -s- as well, but have you personally verified that? S and non-S models can be different internally and in what BIOS makes possible - perhaps not in this case...

Re: T450S SSD

The T450 and 450s are 95% Identical with regard to the hardware which happens to be present in both devices. The only differences between the two devices are the T450 has 2 conventional and fully expandable SODIMM slots compared with the T450s which has one slot with a standard upgradeable ram module along with a permanently soldered second ram module which can not be upgraded after recieveing the device from lenovo. The other difference is in the display options available for each device. The T450 only has options for up to a 1600x900 display configuration (in toch or no touch setup) which Lenovo chose to sell as an option and the T450s has a full HD 1080P display configuration which it was available in. However the 1080p panel thats in the T450s can actually be purchased and installed in the T450 without any issues but if you contact Lenovo looking for the panel for a T450 theyll tell you they don't sell one, instead you say its for a T450s and then you install it yourself. Also the T450 has dual batteries and the T450s has only 1. Beside that, they almost exactly the same except for the T450s being a slightly thinner device. 

 

Everything else is the same, theres 2 m.2 Ngff ports built into both devices motherboards and the option to add the 3rd adapter slot available on both versions. Along with the presence of a Standard SATA 3 connector.
