Next question is can I attach the tv bracket anywhere on the fried wall? It is the only reinforced wall I have installed.
You need to find some wood backing (not just the plywood) for the TV arm. Try a stud finder or tap to find the backing. My TV mounts as near the front edge as possible. The edges will always have some sort of framing behind them. Do you have build pictures which show where your framing is?

The local store does not have the "T" tip? Try another store, order it online, or ask the store to order it.

Or the "T" tip does not fit? (I would be surprised if they changed the power plug without changing the TV model number.)

I assume you mean the rear street side in the 19 which you had reinforced and there is cable there? You can mount anywhere on the wall but remember it swings out on the arm. I found mounting it on the edge where there is also a stud as Doug explained was good and you can then swing it back into the corner or around so you can see it from the front.
As far as the plug, read what the little black in line box states is the output, if 12v, you can use the male end by just cutting cord and attach a cigarette lighter end at the cut for your 12v source. Or wait until September, I'm sure one of us can help you then.

Have a look at this page on adapters. Make special note of polarity.
How to Read an AC DC Adapter | eHow

On that page, if you click on this image you will see the whole image. For some reason it is cropped on the page, making it hard to understand.

If you can't find the symbols on the TV, check the manual.

Sorry. Don't understand.
I think your best bet is a big box electronics store. Tell the salesman that you want a TV that has AC and DC cords included. Then make sure it actually does have both before you take it home.
I have a 15 inch Seiki, but ratings are not that great and 24 appears to be the smallest now. I can't write a review because I've only driven it around ( in a box, under the bed ), not watched it.
