Most 12V appliances use a cigarette plug so you just need to add the mating receptacle.

220v wall socket (I assume you're not in the US) is AC. 12v is DC. Are you looking into installing a permanently mounted spot light? You will more than likely use an empty slot on the fuse panel, wired to a Aux switch at the helm. This would go to the light control unit, then out to the light. The ground would need to come back to the panel as well.

Yep that's what you need to do.
