Check SparkFun, DigiKey, Mouser for the connectors.

NO, you can not plug a DC motor directly onto the Axon output pins. A servo contains circuits to receive the low current pulse train (pulse width is translated into a servo position) from the processor and a high current motor drive circuit.
To run a DC motor you need a drive circuit. and much different signaling than a servo.

There is information on both servos and DC motor drivers in the SoR tutorials and articles.

Yes, search those sites for header connectors, many to choose from.
