I just ordered what's in the title. Not going to overclock my computer but just want it air cooled. Was going to have the 212 Plus CPU cooler be lined up with the rear fan with another 120mm fan added onto the other side. I know with the hologram sticker on the fan facing towards you mean pull while the opposite means push for the airflow.
For the three remaining 120mm silent fans, which mode should I place them in for the side and two for top? Push or pull? No these're not fans with LEDs.

Figured out I need some 3-pin to Molex adapters. The fans are just sitting in the box still. Have way more than enough molex connections but zero adapters to be had.

yeah fan flipping is pretty easy on the 212+ I've done it on my pc so the fans were all pulling pushing the same way as the case fans, and to clear room for my ram.

You will have to move the rubber spacers from one side of the fan to the other. And you will need to make some rubber spacers for the new fans to reduce vibration and noise. Other than that it's a pretty easy conversion.

As for heat, on a single fan my i5 runs pretty cool. 30 degrees C idle (1.6Ghz) and about 55-65 degrees under full load 4.5-4.6 Ghz. Room temp is normally 19-22 degrees C.

I personally would not use direct molex connections on this heatsink. It works fine with power management fans and is pretty quiet. Adding full speed fans en mass may make it louder than it needs to be.
