I wouldn't try to replace them yet..
As for the wiring, it looks like (could be wrong) that the lowest pin (on the bottom) is the common ground, and the other pins are the directions..
I'd see if the spades can be crimped in a way to make them fit to test.
If it works, then you can see if you can buy new connectors that match that style. If you can get a 5 pin connector that fits, just use that and add spade connectors to the other end. You can use shrinkwrap to cover the connectors.
