My team is choosing to use the gyro that is connected to the accelerometer, and we can't figure out which pins to solder, and where the wires go. Could anyone help?

The sensor manual tells all. Read it.
http://usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/content.aspx?id=452 - Click on the Sensor Manual under Section 8 (the robot).

If you look in the sensor manual for the gyro board, It will show you a picture. In that picture, look at the left column of terminals with the pins. They are Rate Out, +5, GND in that order, top to bottom in the picture.
