2000 Cougar 2.5 V6 engine
I see several post about 3 torque to yield bolts during water pump replacement.
Auto Parts stores and dealerships parts department have no idea what I'm talking about. Where are you getting the bolts? Which 3 bolts are they?
Any other advice?

I’ve never replaced any bolts during a water pump replacement. Just reused any old ones that didn’t come with the new part.

There's nothing special about those bolts. Torque to 10 Nm +90 degrees to be compliant with the build manual.
Or just torque until they're tight and forget about it.
Replacement is not required.
