Yep, I managed to figure out how to set the fan curve in msi afterburner since my bios couldn't do it, so that seems to be an easier and more user friendly solution to this issue for beginners than speedfan. Not trying to knock speedfan, but it's really not very intuitive for beginners.

I'm a total newbie to fan control software and I'm now optimizing my first working pc build. I know how to set fan curves through the BIOS and now I'm eyeing fan upgrades to high rpm noctua fans that will be too noisy only if I don't correctly design their fan curves. I can already do fan curves for everything but my gpu cooler, which because of its built-in setup only contacts the rest of my system through the pcie expansion slot it's attached to and its power cable. Using speedfan could I set the aio pump and fan speed curves without having to plug anything from my gpu's aio system into a mobo header? If it helps my pc is running the asus rog maximus z690 hero mobo on windows 11.

Oh it’s not super intuitive period.  It’s merely the one I have used.  In general controlling fans above the OS level just isn’t very reliable which is a reason that is done in bios to begin with. Speedfan predates afterburner and is something of a hack.  From the way the GPU control software things seem to work though they strike me as hacks too.  If there’s actually no fan control in bios (something that hasn’t been a thing for many many years) it’s the only option though. That stuff usually has its own window for such stuff. It could be it’s there but was behind some menu option.
