I have a motherboard with only one fan connector but i want to add more fans to my system. I've heard that you can plug in fans in your psu. This might sound dumb but from what i've seen, fans have the female(end with holes) connector and they plug in to the male(end with the pins) connector on a motherboard or psu. All I see on my psu are 3-pin and molex female connectors. How would i plug in a fan into my psu?

Plug the molex from fan into molex to your PSU. The easiest way to controll a lot of fans is to buy a fan controller.
