hi,
i have a lapierre 9it's a 2012 Xelius) that currently has a SRAM S900 crankset in the press-fit BB. i would like to use this on a new cannondale supersix that has a BB30. can i use this crankset and if not what adapter or BB do i need to get to make it compatible? thanks.

It is directly compatible. You will need a bb30 bearing kit for the other bike (bearings, shields, circlips), and then it drops in.

Are you sure? I'm not familiar with the bike after looking online it looks like it's a BSA frame. It would still work on the Supersix, you would just need some sort of adapter like the Wheels Manufacturing BB30 to SRAM adapters.

Edit: Do you have crank bolts on both cranks or just the non-drive side crank?

Correction: it is especially confusing due to you having an S900 crankset, which I THOUGHT only came with a 30mm spindle. It apparently was also available with a GXP fitment. It will still fit in a Cannondale bb30 frame, you will instead need the bb30 bearings plus a WheelsMfg bb30-to-GXP ADAPTER.
