Im using the ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II and I was having some trouble with my display when I found an 8 pin power connecter that I didn't plug in that is for the CPU that is in the top left corner, my PSU doesn't seem to have a slot that fits the cored that I have connected to my 8 pin Cpu power but there is a 6 pin in the PSU that does fit the cored, am I able to use that or will I break my motherboard, ive done a bunch of research and my PSU doesn't have a 4 pin at all it's only 5, 6, 8 and of course my 32 pin

Your PSU has 4+4pin cable. That goes into 8pin socket on motherboard.
6pin cable is for graphics card. You can not connect it to motherboard.
