I jave a Asus Rog Strix B550-I Mobo and a corsair commander Pro. I need to connect it to a usb 2.0 header, my mobo has one but it says to not connect a 1394 cable. Is the corsair usb connection a normal one or a 1394?

If the cable your case comes in says it's USB or USB2.0, and your motherboard has a USB2.0 header, they will go together and you'll be fine.

1394 is Firewire. It's largely obsolete now and I think the warning is for if your motherboard has a 1394 Firewire header. In which case, DON'T plug in a USB2.0 cable into a 1394 header, that's all. It matters because the headers look practically identical.

The motherboard manual States: USB 2.0 header while the corsair says, to plug it into an available internal USB 2.0 header. Does it qualify as an internal usb header?
