breadboard item 64 omitted technical spec

Technical specification omits diameter of holes in breadboard. Need to know maximum diameter of pin that can be inserted into breadboard.

It is more a question of how large a pin the spring contacts can handle without permanent deformation of the spring. They will handle standard header pins which are 0.65mm square. Much larger than that will stretch out the springs and make them ineffective for smaller pins.

Does Adafruit offer an adapter where socket (F) accepts 2.03mm pin and plug (M) is 0.65mm square?

We do not have an adapter like that. We do have alligator clips with attached male jumper pins that might work for that:
