Well with the Molex to 3 Molex splitter, all it is doing is using the fundamental principles of a parallel circuit, which is how your power supply is set up anyways.
What it means is that the voltage supplied is always the same amount but the current differs based on the load's need. This means you have dynamic power consumption without altering/changing the 12V or other voltage rails coming from your power supply, and it's why power supplies are rated based on their voltage rails (like 40Amps on the 12V rail).
With molex to sata, the only difference is the header/connector, all the wires are exactly the same, it's just the connector head is different.
Let me know if you need some more depth on either answer.
