Once you have the fans connected, you will need to look on the 20 or 24pin motherboard power connector, find the hole with a green wire leading into it, and use something like a paperclip to connect it to a hold with a black wire leading to it. That will start the PSU as if you hit the power button on the case.
Would I just be able to slice the red and black wire's on the fan to a red and black wire on the psu?

If you're 100% sure that the red and black wires are for a +12v rail you could. Not sure why you'd want to given how cheap adapters are.

Plug in the molex connector from your PSU, than use the fan ports for the fans that you need to use.
