With a soldering iron?

Not sure if your connectors are any different to the norm? All the ones I used just get soldered..
Any circuit design must contain at least one part which is obsolete, two parts which are unobtainable, and three parts which are still under development.

If it looks like gold, it's either real gold or brass. Either way it can be easily soldered, unless the surface is engineered to be non-solderable (flash gold, aka hard gold).
In that case, they do have a good reason not to let you solder on it, since it's supposed to be a compression contact point.
