New Radiator question

My current radiator has a small leak. So I ordered a new one that just arrived today and planning to installing it this weekend. The new radiator has two metal fittings on the passenger side that I think are for the automatic transmission cooler. My car is a manual so do I need to do anything with those fittings? Cap them or just leave them?

Any tips for removing the old one?
