It is called a molex connector and normally goes to older hard drives and fans.
Are you saying that each one should have a yellow, a black, and a brown?
I don't know what the brown one is for, or where it goes. Normally if there are only the yellow and the black it is just for power and is normally used for a fan connection.

They look like molex plugs rather than line sockets (which may throw people looking at the photo).
Anyway look carefully at the sides of the pins (from the pin end), you will be able to see a one or two flaps spring out of the side,of the pin, and the open end of the flap catches on the inside of the plastic body.
It's very tricky to do, but you can use jewellers screwdrivers to retract the flaps and gently pull the wire out (once the flaps are properly compressed inwards towards the pin, very little force will be necessary to extract the pin).
It helps to either grow a couple more hands for this operation, or to use a Vice to hold the plug body and recruit a helper to gently pull the wire out when you push the flaps in.
For line sockets the operation is similar, but use smaller screwdrivers so that you do not distort the round metal socket insert.
