Is that a question or you are going to explain it?

How to connect stepper motor
Very carefully.

Depends on the motor and as mentioned the number of connections. This could be easily answered if you provide a data sheet on the motor an more information.

Look here:

To find the coils on a stepper motor, use a DMM on ohms.
4 wires is easy and likely needs no further explanation.

For a 6 wire motor, there will be 2 halves of the motor with 3 wires each.
1 wire will be centre-tap and the other 2 wires will be the coil ends.
*** This is only an example - Wiring colours do vary. ***
We have a 6 wire motor with brown, yellow, orange, blue, green & black wires.
Lets use brown, yellow & orange as an example.
Brown to yellow = 6 ohms.
Brown to orange = 6 ohms.
Yellow to orange = 12 ohms.
Brown is the centre-tap.
There is no continuity from the brown/yellow/orange wires to the blue/green/black wires.
Black to blue = 6 ohms.
Black to green = 6 ohms.
Blue to green = 12 ohms.
Black is the centre-tap.
