It sounds like you want end up with a 4 foot cord that looks similar to this
In order to do that you have to pic up a female adaptor end
and start with a 4 conductor cord. (critical).
the other end of the cord you would attach an adaptor like this
As others have mentioned, you will need to wire the black and red hot wires from the 50amp side to the single hot on the 30amp side... Neutral to Neutral, Ground to Ground.
Am I understanding your situation correctly?
