how do i wire cheapo led fogs to come on with amber running lights on 1st gen?

i know a ton of u guys have done this...
so why is it so hard to find any info!? i've searched for days on end, on and off, over the last month, on TW and google; i'm going insane. i've asked in multiple threads for help but cant seem to get any answers that are dumbed down enough for a lighting noob, like myself...
sure i've installed my fogs following the directions that came with em, sure i've installed map lights from a 4runner with no wire harness and limited info, but i know nothing about relays!!!!! please me
the 2nd gens apparently take less than 5 mins to do this.
i wanted to be done with this mod by now since i tried to start this morning 8 hours ago but dont wanna start a fire or anything, i haven't done shit but continue to search and ask questions in vein, so i started a thread and i swear the first person to say "search" is getting neg. rep.

where do u get one of those special fuze things? what do u call it?

so i just crimp the power from fogs to that thing, stick a 5 and 10 fuze in there and pop it into the tail light slot? seems easy enough

so i assume i could do it this way to the ignition even?
