Default Converting Party Pump for use with CO2?

First things first, are there any party pumps that have the pump attached to the side, and the beer spout coming out the top? Or did I end up with a tap coupler that's had the CO2 inlet converted for use with an air pump?

It's a Perlick unit, and currently has what seems like these two parts:
http://www.beveragefactory.com/draftbeer/pumps/replacement/FN-013.shtml
http://www.beveragefactory.com/draftbeer/pumps/replacement/HP-100.shtml

So if it was indeed originally a regular CO2 tap coupler, or even if not, would I be able to get this adapter, http://www.beveragefactory.com/draftbeer/pumps/replacement/HP-111.shtml ?

I know the description says it's for use the other way around, but since it seems that the threading is the same on both sides for the FN-013 long adapter that I seem to have currently, I'm imagining it should work?

Also, what's the going rate for CO2 from a local supplier? I'm imagining Airgas, etc, would be where I'd want to go? Tank rental/pricing, and then further refills/exchanges?

Thanks.
