Looping marque pause on hover

I used T.Rick’s Looping Marquee pause on hover. I have it running well, but would like to make some changes and can not seem to do so without disrupting the looping marquee.

My portfolio is at justanothercreative.webflow.io

I would like to make each marquee image a link. I did not use the cms to make pages as each page has a different layout by choice, but have added a page link field into the cms.
Adding the link to the marquee image ruins it.

The other thing is I would like to make each marquee image longer, but that stops the smooth loop.

I can live without changing the marquee image width, but making them links is something I really need to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
