Sorta yes, and yes, sorta.
1) WARNING: Be careful hooking up an independent ground wire! If your
equipment has a three-prong plug and you have a three-pronged
receptacle, you can reasonably assume no further grounding is needed.
If you are hooking up a turntable to an amp, most amps have a ground
screw/terminal on the back panel to which you can connect the green
ground wire from your turntable. Most -- but not all -- screws that
attach the dress plate to an AC outlet are grounded; the only way to
know for certain is to check it with an ohmmeter. If it isn't, yes
you'll have to shut the power off to the receptacle and rewire or
replace it -- but again, know what you are doing, as the amperage is
VERY lethal. Try to keep one hand in your pocket at all times.
2) If a piece of metal can be attracted by a magnet, it can conduct
electricity. That said, ALL metals conduct electricity.
