The difference is physical size and blade spacing. As for the adapter to plug a 20 into a 30, it is allowing a 20 amp receptacle on a 30 amp breaker which is a code violation. It is not UL listed because it is not safe. If I have no assets, I can sell you an adapter to put a 20 into a 200 amp receptacle because I have nothing to lose. A maintenance man at a papermill hooked 14 wire, rated at 15 amps, to a cable fused for 400 amps. Just because he did it doesn’t make it safe. In that case, the wire would have vaporized, possibly starting a fire. As I stated back at the start of this, the safest way is a small sub panel.
