I have a Raspberry Pi 4 in a CanaKit case w/ fan.

I am attempting to install the fanless variant of the Uctronics model U6109 PoE hat, but it covers and uses the gpio pins that I previously had the fan connected to.

The pins do not stick up out of the hat for the ones that it "uses" - at least not past being barely palpable (if I remove heatsinks from the RPI board.)

How do I connect the existing fan while using this fanless PoE hat?

The "HAT" appears to have pads which expose the "hidden" pins - just use these!

Install a 6 pin (or 8 pin for extra Gnd) header on the 8 pads on the left of the board.
