Will the product below add ethernet access so I can download skins and run internet updates to retropie?

If it is compatible with raspberry pi zero then it will work.
However it is a micro-USB connector, please note that the micro-USB is only for charging in the raspiboy! The USB data are the USB connectors.

Yeah you should be able to find a full sized USB one easy enough. Just make sure its Pi compatible as not all will be as the prev comment stated.

Thank you both for your responses. Would USB wireless adapter be a better choice? or is that difficult or impossible to configure?
Thanks

It would be way easier to be fair as then you dont need a cable. The wifi setup is real simple and menu based in retropie's setting. Again just make sure its listed as Pi compatible.
