I can definitely help you with a connecting your Curt Venturer Brake Controller # C51110. For this install, you will need a Curt wiring harness # C51451. To install this harness, you need to remove the cover from the black box to the left of the brake pedal. Inside that box, there is a plug in for the brake controller wiring harness. From there it is simply routing/hiding wires and mounting the Brake Controller then pressing the quick connects into place. I've attached a video for you of this install.

I couldn't find anything on the Hopkins 40995 you mentioned, but I think you may be looking at the Hopkins Pollak 7- and 4-pole Trailer Connector, # HM40975. This is a confirmed fit for your truck. I've attached an installation video of this as well. You may want to use some dielectric grease like # 11755 to keep the connections protected from the elements.
