I want to use 3 pieces of motor shield v2 with mega 2560, please advise how to connect the hardware and sample code. BTW, I will use DC motor. Thank you.

You will need to build 2 of the shields with the optional stacking headers. http://www.adafruit.com/product/85

And you will need to change the address on 2 of the shields. See the guide for details.

Sorry, the hardware version should be v. 1, and it already has connector pins on it. What should I do?

The V1 shield has been discontinued for many years now and is no longer supported. The documentation is still available here: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-mot ... d/overview

As you will see, it is not possible to stack the V1 shields.
