I use a Spartan 6 LX45 board to control a car. I need more I/O pins that the Pmod(it's only one Pmod with 8 pins that can I use and I need about 20 pins) offers. It's possible to use prog. header? Any idea what can I buy to extend?

What is the part number of the board? That is the part number of the FPGA. Do you have a manual or schematics for the board? What is the connector on the right in your picture? It seems to have a larger number of pins.

I will let you the datasheet: https://reference.digilentinc.com/_media/atlys:atlys:atlys_rm.pdf
In the right of the photo, it's VHDC connector but I cannot access it, because there are not normal pins and I think I need something to connect to it, maybe an adaptor?

If you want more than 8 IO pins, you will need to use the VHDC connector. Have you looked at the Digilent site or a distributor such as Digikey for a connector or board to plug into this connector?
