How does one expand the USB headers? I need more than 4 so not sure how I expand the 4 ports.

This is just a hub, which is for external use I am talking about the header ports which are internal. The board says it is expandable but no information on how to expand the internal USB header ports.

What motherboard?

Check your motherboard manual. Close to the front, you will see a drawing of your motherboard. You will see several little 9 pin blocks labeled USB. Each one of those blocks has pins for 2 USB ports.

If you do not have enough front panel connectors, you can buy USB connectors that fit into case drive bays, something like this:

You can also buy similar expansions with just 4 USB ports.
