First is a toilet
Between the studs--air vent/sink drain combination

Can't tell the others without one more photo--take a shot from far back that has all pipes in the picture--Mike---

i know 5 is drain since it connect to kitchen sink.

As a general rule you don't tie drains into clean outs. Also, you have backwater valves on that line upstream. These are there to protect your basement from flooding should the outside sewer back up. Put your sink upstream from these valves
3 &4 are the backwater valves. If you unscrew the cap, you will finda rubber flapper that hangs down into the pipe. It works like a check valve- sewage will only flow downstream.
I find it a little odd that you appear to have 2 lines exiting your house. They are generally joined together first- odd that you have 2 cleanouts, could one be for a ground water system?

thanks. i have no clue, since i never DIY plumbing or house remodel before.

i'm using city water so don't think i have ground water system.

so basically I have to cut a hole in the drain pipe and attach a drain pipe to it for my basement sink cabinet?

also 5&6 is on the other side of house relative to 3&4.
