    You would need a trap apapter.

    Either a standard female to trap, or a spigot to trap. The trap side would be a slip joint nut and washer.

    The other side would be a solvent weld (glued) fitting.

    Is this question about two different sinks, because one photo shows an elbow and the other one a T?

    Yes. We use those trap adapters, either hub or spigot depending on whether you are gluing into a hub or onto a pipe.
    The p-trap is tubular and can be assembled using your hands. Easy to remove and work with.
