Bought a 2012 Eco model from shady dealership a couple weeks ago.

It only came with one spare key, its not even the original GM.
I bought some replacement fobs with the key built in but I'm only interested in the fob part as I don't want to go get it cut (right now at least)

Is there a way I can program just the fob with my spare key?
I have no existing fob and the key that's on the new fob is not cut.

I've read around for a bit and tried couple things with no go.
At this point I'm asking as it looks like I'm either SOL or have to get that key cut to program the fob.

Unfortunately my spare key is a solid plastic piece (Looks like and old school car key).
I was able to take the pin out of the replacement fob, but I don't have a key tip to replace it.

I'm diy savvy enough to cut the key from the plastic and fit in place, however isn't the chip in the plastic molding for the key?

EDIT:
Pics of my current and only key and the replacement fob I bought.
