Welcome to the forum. Pleases Fix you caps-lock key before posting. It made your post very hard to read. I have tried but really just not sure what you are saying. Can you try again. Can you post a picture of the transformer you think is the chime transformer and a picture of the connections to it.

Basically there is a door button and a transformer, but not a chime box. I purchased a doorbell kit. I replaced what wa there from the box, now I am trying to figure if the wires I found behind the plate is where I attach the chime box. If so out of the 2 wires which have 2 wire in eah which one or ones do I use.

The wires with yellow wire nuts are your 120 volts to the transformer. The screws on the face of the transformer or low voltage to the chime. One of those wires goes to the common of the door chime. The other goes to the bell and then back to the "F" on your door chime.
