The Nova G3 or the SN2 will work for you. Toolsplus has the G3 fro $99 and then SN2 for $139. You will need the appropriate insert for your spindle size for either; they carry the inserts also.

Not quite understanding your Jacobs chuck (drill) you state..
A tapered drill chuck “You have one”
You need “Are there any preferences for drill chucks that can be locked in with all-thread (to also serve for holding small items)?” Are you talking about locking in a bolt into the back of the chuck? If your current chuck has a taper to fit the tailstock it should fit the headstock. If the taper is not tapped to receive a draw bar you should be able to tap it without much problem.
If you want just a new taper you can get a drawbar style here for <$6.
