Offroad Lights wired to Stock Foglight switch?

I'm gettin my bumper on pretty soon, and am gonna be installing probably 4 Hella's on it. Since I don't have my factory bumper anymore, I was wondering how hard it would be to just tap them into my foglight wires and use my foglight switch to power them on and off? Any tips on how to fuse the wires together and such would be helpful because honestly, I know jack about electrical, Hardware on a truck is a different story but electrical
