Is there a question here? What are you going to put into the two vacant spots if you use a triple switch?

Each old switch will have two wires on it. The new switch will have six screws. Move the old wires in pairs for the old switches to the new switches.

This post is somewhat duplicated here.

Perhaps a Mod could merge them.
