    If they're standard 4 pin molex connectors just daisy chain em, if they're the perhaps more common 3 pin fan connectors and you don't have any appropriate extensions from your psu you can get 4 pin molex to 3 pin fan cables pretty cheap at any store.

    An example would be something like (just stole from google):

    Most likely they're made so that they can be connected one after the other, right? In that case just connect them somewhere to the PSU, yes. If you have a 4-pin molex cable already used somewhere for something else you can just stick them in the middle to save space

    I have no clue how one would stay unplugged, both should end up being connected to the PSU in the end, albeit not necessarily directly.

    I have the same case.
    I'm sure it's 3 or 4 pinned.
    Just connect them to motherboard.
