I assume that whe you say "hard wired", you mean that it doesn't curreltly have a switch and you have to turn the bulb out to turn off the light...

You can purchase an inexpensive ceramic light socket with an internal pull string switch that will most likely replace your current light socket. They are only a few dollars and have a string attached. You can certainly add more string if it makes using the light more convenient. The ceramic fixture would be available at most hardware stores, such as Lowes or Ace Hardware.

What is the difference between toggle switch and a push button?

A toggle switch is like a light switch. You flick (or 'toggle') the switch on or off and it stays in that position until you flick it again. You could compare a push button switch to a key on a keyboard. When you press a key momentarily it will display one letter on the screen. If you hold down the key, the same letter will repeat (e.g. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa). Toggle switches can also look like push button switches.
