Default H100I - SP120 & Commander Pro - Help!

I am looking for a little help & advice on my current build, as I am a first timer PC builder.

I have the Corsair Crystal 570x case, Corsair Commander Pro, Corsair Hydro H100I Pro Liquid Cooling, and 3x extra SP120 fans to match the 3x SP120 fans that come with the Corsair Crystal 570x case.

Basically I want to get all of the RGB, speed controls, etc working with iCUE. That is why I purchased the commander pro in the first place. I'v found a wiring diagram online, so I think I am good & understand how to set it up for the most part.

Lets start with the H100I Pro Liquid Cooling. Currently it has the SP120 PWM fans as stock, and a 4pin connector attached to the liquid cooling head / block that they plug into. Is there a way to get the 3pin SP120 fans to work with the H100I Pro Cooler, and also have the ability to control the fan speed? Everything I read is telling me I could get away with it, but it wouldn't be a good idea because I can't control fan speed, and the static pressure on the SP120 is poor compared to the stock SP120 PWM fans. Also lets say I go with the SP120 3pin fans. Do I have to plug them into the H100I 4pin fan connectors? Can I go right to the commander pro and RBG hub? OR is that a bad idea? Should I just keep the stock SP120 PWM fans with the H100I and sacrifice the RBG for performance, and eventually invest into 6x PWM fans down the road? I am willing to do that if necessary.

Lets say I do keep the H100I Pro Cooler stock fans. Can I still use the front 3x SP120 fans that come with the case, 1x SP120 as the exhaust, H100I 2x SP120 PWM fans and connect them to the commander pro / hub?

Now to setup the Commander Pro - I would attach the 4x SP120 RBG pins to the RBG hub that comes with case / fans (slots 1-4). Attach the 4x SP120 3pin to the commander pro (slots 1-4). Attach the corsair RBG logo on front of case to (slot 5) on RBG hub. Attach the RBG Hub to LED #1 on the Pro, and my LED lights to LED #2. Than I'd need to attach the H100I to the USB #1 on the Pro, and the power supply to the SATA on the commander pro?

This should allow me to control the 4x SP120mm fans, the Corsair Cooling RBG block, the LED lights and the corsair logo on the front? I should be able to control fan speed, and everything as well? Will I have control over the stock fans on the H100I?

Just looking for a little help & advice. Thank you
