I decided to go with this board for my build and I just had a few questions about the front panel headers. It says the pro supports (1) USB v3.2 Gen 2 (Type-C) and two gen 1 USB ports but my case, the Fractal Meshify 2 has 2 USB ports on top of the case. Does that mean only one of those USB ports up on top of case will be USB 3.2 gen 2 type c, and the other will be different?

Also I see a Type C connector on my case on top, like where you would plug in a phone charger. Does this mobo support a connection for that as well? Here is a pic of the top of the case.

 
the pro supports (1) USB v3.2 Gen 2 (Type-C) and two gen 1 USB ports but my case, the Fractal Meshify 2 has 2 USB ports on top of the case.
the board supports:
1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 (up to 5Gbps) connector support additional 2 USB ports
1 x USB 3.2 Gen2 connector support additional 1 USB ports(20-pin, Type-C)
2 x USB 2.0 connector(s) support(s) additional 4 USB 2.0 port(s)
Does that mean only one of those USB ports up on top of case will be USB 3.2 gen 2 type c
yes, only one of those will be "Type-C".
type-c only refers to size\shape of the USB 3.2 port.

the other two should be USB 3.2 "Type-A".
