If I understand your question, Can you run a 110 appliance off of a 220 volt outlet? You could by only using one leg of the 220. You may also consider changing the outlet. Put in a regular 110 outlet and capping off one leg of the 220 in the wall box. You still have a neutral and a ground to work with. I read this as the questioner doesn't want to modify the outlet. Check the voltage ratings on the device. Many electronic devices nowadays can havdle 120V or 240V as it is cheaper to manufacture one powersupply and sell it everywhere. If your device is rated for 240V, you can put a 240V plug on it. If it only says 120V, no dice. 240V will burn it up.

Can a ventless fireplace be installed in a propane fireplace?

NO, you are talking about to very different appliances, A vent free fireplace is usually designed to fit into an existing wood burning fireplace where you have fire brick or a firebox that is designed to withstand high heat. A propane fireplace while it can obviously withstand some heat, wasn't designed for the kind of heat a vent free appliance can produce, A propane fireplace is designed for a specific flame and heat source. They design the appliance to allow as little as possible clearance to combustible materials used in construction. Changing the flame source or type or changing the logset can change the heat signature of the appliance affecting how close combustable material can be used around the appliance. It would not be safe to retrofit a vent free appliance into a vented gas fireplace.
