I need to connect USB ports like this one:

on my motherboard. I know that I need to connect it by wires with USB header pins on motherboard.

Good example is how external USB ports are connected - that is quite simple.

But, I need to find items like that connector on motherboard and wires and I suppose I need some tools to make this work. How do I get this to connect to my motherboard?

If there are expansion molex type header pins for an off the board port, then you will probably need some wire, heatshrink (optional), molex KK type connectors, some crimp contacts and crimp tool. –  Oli Glaser Jan 9 '12 at 15:52
