to make what amplify a mic? what sort of mic?

you can normally just connect a mic to a mixer/PA by an XLR cable. Some mics come with jack leads which can be plugged into an amp or mixer/PA. You can also buy various cables/connectors to connect between XLR and jack

This would be better answered in GG+A though
