No, not directly. You can buy Halogen bulbs that are made to be used in a standard light socket. They are for sale at the standard outlets. I have a number of these in my house, and I use these in some of my light sockets. Just for you information I have one in my lap as I am typing this it is a Philips Master 120 Volts 60 Watt bulb. The only condition is that you have to get a specific bulb for dimmer circuits, a standard halogen does not work with dimmers. The bulbs have ceramic insulator protecting a balast circuit, the dimmer bulbs have a rather large ceramic end, that is sometimes enclosed inside the standard light globe. All the standard bulb manufacturers should sell these. You just cannot use Halogen bulbs in enclosed lights unless they are made for this purpose, as is the dimmer variant I wrote about.

Yes. It depends on the fixture. If the bulb runs at line voltage (i.e. without a transformer), then yes. If it's a low voltage halogen bulb, such as a 12 volt running off of a transformer, then you'll need to find out if the transformer is dimmable.

Look on the side of the light fixture under the hood of your car. There is a knob sticking out of the side of the fixture. Take a long screw driver and push the knob over about 1.5 inches. This will release the light fixture. Pull the fixture out from the front of the car and you can access the blubs.
