I've not read all of the thread but did a little searching and found
this:-

which would get around the problem of only having a modern PC with no
floppy ports on the motherboard. However this states that it only works
for reading 5.25" floppies.

I also found PCI-e to IDE cards. One of these might let you connect an
LS-120 drive if you have/can get one, which also work with 3.5"
floppies.
