    Your link is unique to your browser. I would remove it and find the generic page that everyone sees.

    However, If the supply is just shown as a shiny metal box with a screw block. Then yes you well need a cord.

    I'm no expert. however I think any grounded 3 prong type found at your hardware store should work.

    I had a spare computer power supply cord I cutup and attached. It works well.

    did you just strip the cord to expose the wires and plug it in?

    Basically yes. But (yes theirs always a but) you should keep in mind that there is a right way and a way that well burn your house down.

    Have a look at the you tube link below, it's describing the proper way to wire a power supply.
