It looks like the one you found is to connect PB to another type of piping. In that case you could get a CPVC tee and a short bit of CPVC piping and recreate that portion of your piping.
Here's a guy on YouTube who seems to have a similar problem to you. He fixed it with PEX piping and fittings. I've never used PEX due to a possibly erroneous belief that the crimper tool is too expensive. Maybe they're cheap now.

If you have to replace pipe I recommend replacing it with PEX and replace the entire system as possible.
Pex allows foolish extravagance with marginal maintenance temperatures without a mistake becoming a consequence.
