The potentiometer's info:
on the back of it there is a label that says

I would like to connect it to a Vex Cortex with the newest firmware. What ports on the cortex would I connect to which terminals on the potentiometer?

Also for the limit switch I would like to do the same thing.
The limit switch is model #: SS-01GL13PT

Here is a VEX Cortex pinout:
The pot wiper goes to an analog input, one side goes to 0V and the other side goes to 5V.
There is a VEX Cortex schematic of the I/O on page 13 of:
Since the digital inputs have an internal pullup resistor, connect the switch from the input to 0V.
