Will a Mossberg 500 barrel fit a 930?

I just bought a 930 from a gunshow for $300 below value, in which it was a no brainer for me. However it's the SPX which doesn't have the choke threads and is a 18.5 inch barrel. I want to use it for waterfowl and would like to control my patterns. I've noticed 500 barrels are a lot cheaper than 930s. Would they fit? I want to get a 24in with threading and found a couple online.

How will the gas get to work the action using a pump gun barrel; there are no ports?

For waterfowl, you'll want longer than 24, more like 28 for smoother swing dynamics.

You bought a 930 for $200?
Not sure, but I don't think it will work as a single shot or repeater, let alone a semi-auto.

No they will not fit or work. 500 barrels are for the Model 500 pump action. 930 barrels for the Model 930 which is a gas-operated semi-automatic shotgun that uses a piston.
