I've never messed around with butchering an ESC before.

The red wire is positive.
The brown wire is negative.
The orange wire is the signal.
You will also need a variable resistor. Like a volume control or trigger type control.
The best thing is to plug it up properly with a receiver. if you are not good with electronics you will burn this system up. What you want is obtainable but I don't know that using that stuff is the way to go for you. Why not just use a motor with a vatriable resistor. That way you don't damage the ESC you have. Good luck with your project.

A receiver outputs a special signal to the servo or esc. It is not simply a varying voltage or resistance. You could build a circuit to drive the esc, but it would require a special integrated circuit to drive it.

Take a look here at the details of the signal that drives a servo or esc:
