Moreover I don't want to buy the most expensive SSD. I found some models on the internet from a various brands and models but one of most important things that I want to know is how to figure out which Type of SSDs are compatible with my MacBook Air 2017 ?

In the other words what is their connectors and speeds. Are they different and how do I know which SSDs are compatible with system?

Your System as well as all other Mac’s use a custom blade SSD. It can’t use M.2 SSD’s like the ADATA SSD as it won’t fit the connection.
