Red & Black are VCC and GND respectively. That's enough to run the DC motors.

What do you mean by control? You want to control the motor via program running on computer?

You cannot directly do it via the four wires. The usb data is encoded(NRZ). You'll need a usb interface chip or you can use an Atmega microcontroller with vusb firmware.
