Well a fan can only blow air one direction. Theyre unidirectional motors. You need to properly organize them yourself first.

But as far as fan SPEED controllers, buy a fan speed controller panel, a rheobus or a fanbus.

Heres mine.

System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

My penis is bigger than yours.

There are a ton of Electronic sites with simple single IC fan speed controls. If you can read a schematic and use a breadboard they should be no problem to make actually. I have built a few.
