as far as wiring goes, you can go to autozone, and buy one of those fuse splitters. It basically goes into where a current fuse is in the fuse box, and also contains a positive lead coming from the fuse. From there you can wire your positive wire, down to the switch, then to the fog lights. The ground just ground to anywhere on the car that is touching the metal frame.

I haven't actually done fog lights on my car yet, but the wiring should be the same as anything else. Just make sure red goes with red, and black gets grounded. Lemme know if you need more help...i can try and give you a more detailed idea?
