Assuming garage is detached less than 80 ft away. You need a 60 AMP double pole breaker for the 200 AMP house panel, and need to have two spare slots. Additionally you should have conduit in running in ground, and have #4/3 W/ground Stranded cable running to the sub panel. This setup will allow for 110V's and a 220V circuit. Connect the two hots, Red/Black to the Breaker on your servicing the panel. Connect the neutral (White) to the Neutral bus bar along with the Ground wire. Sub panel on detached Garage. Attach the White neutral wire to the Neutral ground bar. Attach the ground to the ground bar on the Sub panel. Pull the permits and have it inspected!

If your house has the wires from the meter going straight into your panel box then you tie the neutral and ground to the same busbar. However;

If you havve a disconnect on the outside of your house then you must separate the neutral andground inside the 200 amp panel box. This is usually prevalent on a mobile home or any time the pnel box you are using is fed from another panel or disconnect.

No. Any connections to the detached garage have to be after the main disconnect of your house panel. You have two options here.
