Would this wiring work for a USB splitter?

Ok, weird question but I have a computer with only one USB 3.0 slot on it...

Can I buy a USB 2.0 splitter like this one (limited on room inside it so need a tiny one):

Then, solder the GND, D+, D-, VCC from the mother board to the HUB. Then on one of the hubs 2 additional 2.0 slots, I will desolder one and add a 3.0 slot. Then add the remaining 5 connections to that slot.

Is this possible? Anyone know if this could work? I need an extra USB slot on this computer but don't want anything external. I would like to keep the origional USB 3.0 for my flash drive but could use a 2.0 for a mouse dongle, etc.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, that won't work since the computer slot sees the hub as a device so it will think it's talking to the hub over the rest of the 3.0 pins.
