i have a couple of questions. I'm a entertainment technician who does lighting and sound. We are regularly required to connect and disconnect power for our equipment I have a couple of questions about what we can legally do. I have heard may things and do not know what is true. I'm not licenced or training in electrical.

1)Can I connect 50A Single Phase Stove Plug Connections. (aka Plug it in)
2)Can I make regular 120V electrical cable (12-3 for Twistlock, 14-3 for U-Ground)
3)Can i make 240V electrical cable (6-4)
4)Can I make other electrical cables, SOCA (19 Pin 12 Gauge Multichannel, CAMLOCK (or C-Way)
5)What about generators (do I need a permit to use one, can I tie bared wire tails into them, can I connect to them)
6)Can I connect CAMLOCK (C-Way) 3-Phase 120V Phase-Ground, 208V Phase-Phase
7)Can I tie in CAMLOCK Tails to a fused disconnect
8)What do I need a permit to do??
9)I've heard that if I'm on indien land or federal government owned property and I can do anything an electrician can??
10) Can I help build distribution panels)
11) Last question, can i change ends on lightin equipment.

Thanks. That makes sense for installation of wiring such as tieing tails into a panel. What about connecting? Would that connecting connections which are all ready in place. Also, Any ideas where I might find info about who can build the equipment?
