I had a USB logitech controller (unsure of model, its probably 10 years old or so) that I took the 2 small vibration motors out of and have been trying to figure out: 1. How to connect it to my Arduino Uno. I've searched and searched but I can't seem to find anything that fits my exact criteria. And 2. How to code it after I've figured out the first part. Any input is appreciated. I really have no goal with this project, just messin around with different components.

Your going to need more then just your Arduino. Personally, I have had really good luck with spark fun's motor driver and I keep a few around for testing. You might also like that they come with some sample code...

Very cool. Seems easy enough. I'm gonna go ahead and order one of those. Thank you!

If they are the same as in a DualShock controller they will be designed for 7.2V, as that's the
vibration motor supply voltage specification.
