Can you convert an overhead light fixture that is hardwired into a plug-in fixture?

Yes, you should be able to. (1) Make sure that the circuit breaker to that fixture is de-activated. (2) Remove the celiing fixture and unfasten the fixture from the two wires going into it from the junction box (usually held together by wire nuts). (3) Attach the wires coming from the junction box to the terminals of the new outlet you will be using. (4) secure the outlet to the junction box. (5) Re-activate the circuit breaker. If the former ceiling light was controlled by a switch, the new outlet will also be controlled by the same switch. DISCLAIMER: This instruction is for an ordinary run-of-the-mill ceiling fixture. If more than two wires are involved or the light is controlled from more than one switch, these instruction may not apply.

Simply replace the light fixture with a plugin. There is most likely a box behind the light that will either accept a plug as is or a cover place can be used to allow the use of a plug in that box.

If you can play a mini2sf file with winamp and the chipamp plugin, all you need to do it enable winamps nullsoft writer plugin. This will convert the files to a .wav file when you play them, which will let you convert them to .mp3 in any old audio conversion program -- I suggest Any Audio Converter.
