Should the hard drive and the cd rom use the same connection cable to a M2N68-AM PLUS motherboard?

It is recommended that you use a separate cable for hard drives, and CD-ROM drives, especially if your CD-ROM drive is a CD burner. This goes for any computer system. Placing a hard drive and CD-ROM drive on the same cable can introduce performance problems, especially when reading from a CD or writing to a CD.

I am wondering if the power connectors have to be in a certain order for them to work or can you plug them in where ever they reach the component you want to hook up?

If you are talking about the cables from the power supply that are made for each component (Hard drive, video car, CD-ROM, etc.) then yes, they can be hooked up any way that fits the setup you have in your case.

The only real discrepancy is that you have to be sure they are coming straight from the power supply. A lot of components do offer a split connection for when connections are limited, though.

Simply put, make sure that the cable you are connecting to something that is important to your computer (Again, hard drive, video card, CD-ROM (not entirely necessary, I guess,) has a solid connection to the power supply.

Hard drives and CD-ROM drives are interchangeable for the most part, though. You just need to watch that you aren't connecting something to a 'dead end' cable where is won't get the power it needs to operate.

As long as it's a straight connection to the power supply though, and the PS has the wattage to handle it, just go for maximum air flow within the case and keep it tidy.

I would like to fit a second hard drive i have a sata cable to go from mother board to second hard drive which i understand plugs into the mother board socket below main hard drive but their does not...

Look for more power connectors on the cables already powering devices. Especially check the entire length of the power cable terminating at your main hard drive. It is ok to use multiple connectors on the same cable simultaneously.
If you do need a splitter, I recommend this one.

No matter what i do cd rom not detecting

check whether the powe plug has been inserted properly and the power plug is working fine. Even though if the power plug inserted is working fine and CD ROM not detecting means CD ROM was damaged.

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration

Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

MSI Board getting hung and not passing POST stage

Either the hard drive cable isn't plugged in correctly or the power supply connector is faulty and try another power connector. With the hard drive, make sure the cable to the hard drive is connected withe the red line on cable faced to the same side as the power connector. Also check that the connector on the hard drive is either on Master or Slave mode if on the same cable as the CD Rom. The motherboard sounds like it's working correctly. Even try to see if connectors are correct on the CD Rom and floppy drive. Good Luck!
