Not much to it. There are 6 pins on the chip and 6 pads on the PCB. Line them up and solder.

If you scroll down to the "TECHNICAL DETAILS" section of the product description, there will be a pinout diagram showing which pins are which. (Note the notch in one corner to help you orient the chip) https://www.adafruit.com/product/619

As the diagram shows, there are 3 individual LEDs on the chip. You can connect these the same as you would connect three individual LEDs: https://learn.adafruit.com/all-about-leds
Note that the Vf of the red LED is lower than the green or the blue, so your resistor calculation will be different as well.
