there are holes on the mobo that are filled which need to be removed so i can add a component.Yeah, don't if you can help it. There are several layers to the motherboards, and pulling all the solder (sometimes even with braided copper, which is used for this) can knock a ring loose within the hole or damage a trace, then it's over.
If you need to replace a cap, just solder it to the surface as long as the hole is still full of metal. Best bet is to pull the cap at the legs by bending so the legs stay in and the contacts get pulled out, instead of actually removing the cap. This gives you something to solder to. Try using small wire cutters and cut the legs of the caps after you bend them over to the side.
