1. This is the secret Sauce for PS5 super fast SSD, Sony confident that their SSD for PS5 will be much much faster then SSD for PC on current market, 

Let's not propagate this snippet of false information, shall we? No way can a console match the SSD capabilities of a high-end SSD setup on PC.

2. Some industries insider also confirm PS5 SSD will be much faster than Xbox Scarlet

Only speculation. Wait till the hardware actually gets revealed.

3. A while ago we also found a SSD patent by Sony that has costume SRAM and dedicated chip for Sony SSD's , and it has more advantage over current SSD. 

SRAM is usually reserved for L1/L2/L3 caches on CPU's, GPU's and other processors, so the controller on the SSD could have a fair amount of processing capability if it features a chunk of SRAM.
In saying that, SRAM tends to be smaller, more expensive than DRAM, so it's use in large sequential reads/writes would be limited. - Massive boon for small random reads/writes though... But no reason why it can't or won't have both, memory hierarchy's exist for a reason.

However, to say it has "more advantages" over current SSD's with large DRAM pools and SRAM on the controllers is being disingenuous. - Who makes up these claims? Current PC SSD controllers have SRAM and DRAM, unless it's a low-end SSD.

You will not find any Nvme like this on the market 

EDIT: why would Sony bothered making a patent for it or even customize it, if it's not to cut the cost , making it more  accessible or make it even faster. 

If sony using normal Nvme for PS5  they will not make any patent, or making any statement.
