Tesla has two types of chargers. A so-called destination charger that's equivalent to Level 2, and a couple of companies make adapters so that you can use your Bolt (or any J1772 equipped car). Note that this is AC charging and is limited to 7.6kW on the Bolt (the car takes care of the charging).
The other type is DC charging and is called a supercharger. Tesla uses their own plug for this and there is no adapter for other cars in north America. Superchargers can charge some Teslas up to 250kW.

And just to complete the discussion, the Bolt can take 55kW max from a CCS type DC charger.
Electrify America offers 150-350kW CCS DC charging. Again, the Bolt takes care of the rate. All you have to do is plug in and the car will limit charging to 55kW even though the charger can deliver much more.

If you are in europe people have been fast charging because they all use the same connector... I think
Not quite. In Europe, for fast charging mass-market consumer EVs/PHEVs there, there at least these plugs:
shows 1st and 2nd. The video was created before any Teslas w/Combo2 were sold in Norway.
