Personally, I say it's personal preference. We found we like daylight 5000K better so as bulbs burn out I get new LEDs (previously CFLs) that are daylight. Eventually they'll all be changed but for now they are mixed and we don't mind. What's your preference? That's what I'd go with.
I purchased 4 identical systems, each with the same LED driver/controller and remote. Each LED strip had to be wired separately with it's own DRIVER/CONTROLLER. Only one remote will operate all 4 strips. The problem however is that the remote can get out of sync with the lights strips and then it's pure h^ll trying to get them all back in sync, only to ...
I'd use wire nuts to attach those to standard lamp cord, and put a standard plug at the other end...
It should be noted that while PAR LED's have the form factor of traditional halogen PAR bulbs, they do not have the parabolic reflectors of traditional PAR's. The light emitting diode cannot be suspended in space, in the middle of a reflector the way a filament can, at least not yet, it has to be mounted on a board. So, all of the light is coming directly ...

But to answer your question....sure you can use an LED flood there. there are many options. I like 1000bulbs.com for buying stuff for the house. pretty ...
They Look similar. Best bet is to check with Cree. THey make fantastic LED products but without a spec sheet one couldn't know for sure on this.
I have used these inexpensive LED tape lights from Amazon.com with very good success. You can cut them down to as small as 4" pieces, and use connectors to get wire leads to connect to a driver. You'll need some low-voltage wiring to go between the tape ends and the driver. You have to calculate how much wattage you are putting on each driver, but they do ...
