I edited my post but I think I understand what you are trying and it does work in other scenarios (ITX with one psu for board + 2nd psu for card 8pins)
Kind of expensive just for a test but definitely worth it if it works. It could enable some extremely small external psu builds with the slimq gan charger.

I am using this realtek RTL9210B i bought from aliexpress and i connected it to 2021 Hp spectre x360 with Intel Iris xe and i71155g7 (13,3 Inch)

That doesn't work. You need a real Thunderbolt (40Gbps) compatible M.2 adapter/ SSD enclosure. They usually sell for around 100 bucks.

For example:

I've been looking for quite a while now, and I haven't been able to find a generic TB4 compatible m.2 adapter anywhere. Do you know where I can find the module and maybe not a fully enclosed adapter (like the original project on here)?

you need to look for Thunderbolt 3 / 40Gbps M.2 SSD enclosures, not for the bare module...

here are some examples that should work:

SABRENT SSD M.2 Enclosure, Thunderbolt 3 SSD Docking Station USB C Aluminium External M2 NVMe Adapter, Tool-free, with Cooling Pad, Supports 2242, 2260, 2280, Thunderbolt Cable Included: Amazon.de: Computer & Accessories

OWC Envoy Express Thunderbolt 3 NVMe SSD drive enclosure Black: Amazon.de: Computer & Accessories

note: USB3, 10Gbps, 20Gbps adapters won't work

also take care with the newer Thunderbolt 4 / USB 4.0 adapters ... they have an additional controller (e.g. JMS583) to switch between USB / Thunderbolt for backwards compatibility and in my tests they didn't work or would cause issues
