I'm building my first computer and I'm not sure on how to connect all my fans to work with ARGB and PWM at the same time. Could someone please explain how it all works and how I can make my configuration work?

Front and back fans: https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-MasterFan-Independently-Absorbing/dp/B08PZV96ZF?th=1

CPU Aio: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B086BYYFG5/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Motherboard: https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-TUF-X570-PRO-Motherboard-Addressable/dp/B08JWMPVD9

Please and Thank you!

RGB/ARGB has nothing to do with PWM, first one is for lights and second one is for fan motor. Each lead should be connected appropriate connector/header on the MB, a hub or a separate controller if it exist.
Fans speed controlled by BIOS settings (Smart fan) or thru Ai Suite in case of Asus (don't recommend it).
Lights also thru Lighting_Control software.
That CPU cooler is not ARGB, just RGB. Headers for RGB are:
2 x Aura RGB Strip Header(s)

For ARGB fans:
1 x Addressable Gen 2 header(s)

For fan motors on that cooler (PWM) leads I'd suggest you connect them to CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT Fan on the MB.
For pump MB has AIO_PUMP connector

For case fans there are 3 x Chassis Fan connector(s) for their motors and for their lights Addressable Gen 2 header. Look up their locations in MB manual.
