What is typically referred to as a "cooler conversion" on this site is turning a cooler into a MLT, like this: , and about 100 other threads on this board.

What you've linked to is more commonly called a jockey box. Yes, you still need a separate keg. The jockey box is a way to cool beer from a warm keg, and dispense it cold.

Fill jockey box with ice; beer flows through the copper coil (in the ice) and is dispensed cold.

And unless that's some massive copper tubing and those are perlick faucets, $400 for that jockey box is pretty steep.
No signature required.
