Hello, not a direct answer to your question, but.
1) Having the vga adapter is way easier so you can see what your doing.
2) I know server 2012 will run on the mediasmart servers, but unless you have the upgrades (Cpu/Ram) you may not be happy with performance.
3) i would recommend the ex-490 or x-510 with the Cpu/Ram upgrades as a minimum.

But just my 2 cents....
Let us know how it is going and watch out for the Microsoft Breaking win updates problem that could be pretty hard to fix headless.

Good Luck

Do you know where I can buy this adapter? or at least the parts and tools to build it?

I did some looking on ebay and found these, while not the same, they might be better then nothing. There may be others like them and also you may find a unit the same series as yours used that comes with one.
Then you would have spare parts as well.
Good Luck
Here is the ebay link, Not my sale, you may find more like them.
