So I have a HDD drive and I want to migrate everything on it, to a new SSD without breaking any of the links between that SSD and my primary SSD. I have a TON of steam games and other links on the HDD that I would love to work without me having to redefine the link for each game.

And the SSD size?

If this is a secondary drive, you don't need any clone or migration.
You'd need a 1TB SSD, and then copy/paste from the HDD to the new SSD.
Then, swap drive letters around so that the SSD has the same drive letter as the HDD does now.

Done.

What size is the new SSD?
How much space is actually consumed on the current HDD?
