Don't bother double posting. Until you get some pictures of your specific model, all we can tell you is to look at how others hooked thiers up.

Find some place to attach wires. Usually there are two wires for power and one for earth. Polarity does not matter. There may also be some unused wires.
Connect the output line using a compression fitting.

The compressor may have arrived without a relay. If it didn't there is 3 electrical posts that go into the compressor. You will need a start relay to plug into the compressor and power connects to the start relay.

More info here http://fixitnow.com/wp/2005/12/01/refrigerator-warming-up-and-makes-an-occasional-clicking-noise/

For hook-up the 1/4 inch copper pipe is the outlet. It will need soldered fittings to use. The 3/8ths pipe is the inlet.

If it is a new compressor, it shouldn't have freon in it. It should have dry nitrogen and the tubes plugged with rubber plugs. If it is used, an appliance shop should be able to recover the freon from the refrigerator.
