Lighting install in CH? Diagrams?

Does anyone know a good site with diagrams of how to install lighting in Switzerland?
I am from the U.S. and familiar with 120V and how to wire lighting there (have done lights, fans & switches, etc), but everything I've read on the Swiss system so far confounds me. I've read horror stories regarding random color-coding, etc. and do not want to "ride the lightning."
My wife and I just bought two lamps from IKEA and I couldn't figure out the install. There are plastic adapters on the lamp, and on the wires from the ceiling, and they don't match up, but I am afraid that if I strip the adapter off one or the other end, I'll be charged by the apartment for damages or I'll ruin the lamp.
Also, the only mounting hardware included is an eyelet to hang over a hook in the ceiling, but I don't see the hook in my ceiling- where can I get the proper hardware, if I don't have it?
