    Microphones should be plugged into a mixing desk, then the desk into an amp
    Unless you have a desk with built in amps.
    Otherwise, probably not, depends where you buy them from i suppose.

    Check the last line of the reponse.
    It depends on where you buy from.
    Are you getting a radio mic or a corded one?

    It may come with either an XLR (3 pin) plug, or a quarter inch jack.

    The microphone may not even come with a lead- you may have just the mic itself, in which case you need to get an XLR female to XLR Male, or XLR Female to Jack lead.

    Mixing desks can be quite expensive, but you can get a small 4-channel unit just for mics.
