Find the fan's ARGB connector, take a pic, and post the pic here.

Find the two headers on the motherboard, take a pic, and also post the pic here

Huh?
Typically these case fans are connected to the fan hub that comes with the case, and often the fan hub is connected to the reset button, pressing the reset button toggles the modes of the fan hub which changes fan colors.
Again, typically these fan hubs have xx modes plus one "off" mode, which isn't actually off...
If you connect the fan hub to the argb or rgb fan header then that "off" mode will follow whatever the mobo is telling it to be.

EDIT: Found a pic of the fan hub which came with an older Redragon case (Grimlock GC-602)

NOTE that RGB header pins were missing on that one!
I soldered those 3 on, and used some dupont wires to to connect it to the RGB header on the mobo.
And I suspect yours is similar... hopefully Redragon improved over the years and yours doesn't need soldering 😄

I'm guessing you meant this :

If so, there's no way you will be able to connect those connectors to your motherboard without some sort of adapter.

Also, I'm not sure, but there is a chance that those fans lighting are "static", meaning can't be controlled through motherboard / software.
