I saw that these fans can also use corsairs iCue software, so just wanted to ask if I could use this without the physical controller since these fans are meant to be an expansion to a 3 fan set.

Also, if anyone has any better fans under 30 NZD, I would like to see. I don't need RGB, but a red led light would be nice but not neccesary.

No to manage the RGB you will need to hook them into a hub of some kind which in turn plugs into the motherboard if you want to manage via iCue. So your looking at the Node Pro unit or commander pro unit.

I think there is also a physical button module from which you can press buttons to change settings available for these fans, but seem a slightly awkward solution and was something out prior to the commander pro etc.

Not exactly.

...are those none color changing fans

Exactly, LED fans are non color changing fans.

They just light up in White, Blue, Red or any other color. :)
