The hedlight switch is the one you use to turn the lights on/off.

You can just wire them to the clearance lamp by splicing into them. If you are not sure of wirings, it is best not to attempt them. Any mistakes an be costly.

That is correct but it would mean the lights that you are adding would only work with the headlight circuit.

You can have other alternatives such as having the lights turned on when the ignition switch is turned on, etc.
