Some Servos have a little sticky out tab on the side of the plug that needs trimming off with a sharp scapel, then they will fit Acoms RX.

If you are going to use it with an electronic speed control  (except Action or most Electronize) they supply power to the receiver with no need for a 4.8v battery to feed the Rx. If you need a plug to fit the hole it is called a JST Plug.

The battery only has 2 leads. The negative, usually black, normally goes to the bottom.

In the old days when this receiver was made, you usually needed a receiver battery.  That job is nowadays usually done by the ESC, if it has a BEC inside it.  In cases like that, you don't plug anything into the "power" hole.
The servo/speed control slots need 3 pins each, two are for power, one for the control signal.
When the case of the plug has been trimmed to match the shape of the hole it is going to plug into, usually by slicing the tab off the side nearest the white (or nearest white) wire, it gets plugged in with the white furthest into the receiver, and the black nearest the outside edge.
If a receiver battery is needed, it only uses two wires, so only gets two pins, and a hole to just take that type of plug.  The commonest battery plug is red and shaped, the receiver usually has a shaped hole to accept this plug so that it can only plug in one way round, which is always, "black to the outside of the case. 
I'm runnng on memory here, its a long time since I looked at an Acoms radio.
