Hello can someone tell me if all wire connectors be cut and just straight wired? And are connectors just used for your convenience?

Harness connectors are used in cases where a component needs to be replaced or where the component is part of a larger component that needs to be moved. A prime example is the intake manifold that has several electrical connections. Following your way of thinking, using just straight wiring, if you had to remove an intake manifold, then you would have to cut several wires in the process; then upon installation, you would have to strip/re-solder/insulate every wire hoping it was done properly; very labor intensive. Also wires that use shielding are very tricky to re-assemble properly.
