The car should be prewired. If it isn't, you're F'd.

What you can do is tap the parking light wire to power them.

possibly. you can have the power going to one or the other and not face issues. I cut the wire and now my parking lights are off all the time, but the turn signals still work and sidemarkers light up ( so its till legal)

you can tap into your parking light, but you should use the tap to trigger a relay, and not power directly off of the parking light. This setup also makes it really easy to add other mods later on too.
