You can buy a VDO pressure sender with a warning switch built in, if you want to go that way. That is what I did as it simplifies things. Unfortunately, you do still need something to get the sender away from the filter housing as it interferes with the oil cooler thermostat assembly, so buying a new TEE as Matthew links to is cheaper.

I assume the oil pan has the temperature sender.

Is this the sender I want?

I just need a fitting to get the clearance for the sender to fit next to the housing right? I assume it doesn't need to be a T if I am using 1 sender.

The sender choice depends on the gauge it connects to. You need to match the ranges. The threads depends on what the threads are on the extension piece that you choose. The stock thread (stock warning switch and filter housing is M10x1.0)
