From your last picture you have a CNC USB Motion Controller. This operates with the Planet-CNC software and does not require the use of Mach3.
I am currently unable to reach the new Planet CNC website but you should be able to download the necessary software and manuals from their old site here;

EDIT;  The Planet CNC site is back up again & you can download from here; https://planet-cnc.com/software/

Thank u for the suggestion I downloaded it and still cant move machine at all. I already have Mach3 USB style motion controller on my Langmuir Systems CNC plasma cutter and works just fine after I put in correct pins ports and motor values. Please can someone tell me correct Pins Ports and Motor values to plug into Mach3 to make my machine move I can take it from there on tuning just don't know Values and check marks to plug in to get started.

When I try using the PlanetCNC software it keeps saying no controller found even if I hook up my Langmuir Systems Contoller to it which I know works on Mach3 all day everyday. Someone Please Help??????

You will need a Mach3 plugin for that to be possible and I don't think they do one.

Your other option is a new breakout board or motion controller.

Unfortunately it is not quite as simple as that...
Your CNC-USB motion controller has to interpret the data which is sent in packets via the USB connection and currently it will not recognize Mach3 (irrespective of the Mach3 Ports & Pins settings).
You could try contacting Planet-CNC to ask if they have a suitable plug-in for your particular motion controller.

had a quick look to at the planet-cnc webside. does not look like they Support a Mach3 pluging for the Controller. So only Chance will be to swap the USB Controller.

also this post here: http://forum.planet-cnc.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2473
says that mach3 is not supported.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
