I have a 500 GB Samsung EV0 860 in a external USB 3 enclosure.

I don't think TRIM is enabled. What will this do for my external drive? Is there any way to enable TRIM on an external SSD?

think Trim Enabler will work on that setup to enable TRIM on your external drive. Having TRIM enabled can slightly increase your drive's throughput, especially as the drive gets more and more used and garbage collection begins to matter more.
