those are sata connecters.
each drive will have its own sata connection.
The connectors in the photos are clearly SATA connectors, so adding a second SATA drive shouldn't be difficult. Just plug in the data cable (skinny red cable) and a power cable. Even if your power supply is short of SATA connectors, you can buy Molex to SATA converters cheap. Once the drive is installed, boot into Windows, open Control Panel, select Administrative Tools, open Computer Management, then go to Disk Management. From there you can format and/or partition the new drive.
Yes, Mr. Death... I'll play you a game! But not CHESS !!! BAH... FOOEY! My game is...

You will need to buy a SATA data lead, preferably the straight ended one like you already have ( there is also a right angle ended one ) and you will need to find a spare SATA power connector on your power supply loom, and Slgrieb has said adapters are readily available if there isn't a spare connector on the loom.
And you will need a vacant SATA socket on the mobo for the data lead. Most mobos have at least four, so you shouldn't have a problem there.
