You would first need the pin out diagram from the manufacturer. This would explain which pins did what and you could then determine the correct way to attach to the new connector.

I wouldn't be fooling around with the insides of the power supply unless you absolutely knew what you were doing (like have an electronics background).

You want to plug the fan into the motherboard ?
I wouldn't plug that fan into the motherboard, the MB headers aren't made for much of a load other than the small fans on the chipsets.
