Well not needed, not for anything other than person use...

But I'm looking for the diagram someone drew up of a relay and where the leads of the circuit go on it to a factory fog light switch and also where the leads on that switch goes....

This depends on the total wattage of the load which can be converted to amps. (amps = watts/12v). Also the relay must be of adequate amp rating to handle the load.

The diagram has a flaw, though. The wire to pin 6 is coming off of the heavy wire to the lights. It should have a fuse in it that's correct for the smaller wire to the switch and then to ground.

Where it says "Keyed 12V", it would be possible to substitute other triggers like the high beam wire or the headlight/parking light 'on' wire.
