The easiest way would probably be to use an LED fan, but there are many other options. Check here for some ideas: http://www.xoxide.com/lighting.html

No not the motherboard, you need a vacant 4-pin molex power connector from your power supply. The same 4-pin molexes that connect to your cd drive, hard drive, etc.

It's modular too.
