This PC has a ton of ODBC connections set up. IS there a way to make a copy of them and then load them on my new pc?

If they are System DSN's, then use RegEdit, go to HKeyLocalMachine/Software/ODBC, then right-click on ODBC.INI and export the entire registry grouping.  For User DSN's, go to HKeyCurrentUser instead.

Edit the file to remove anything that you don't want to reimport, and then double-click the .REG file on your new system.  (All ODBC drivers should be installed manually, if needed, but this will recreate the DSN's.)
