You don't need an striker with a MIG welder just hook the ground cable to the base metal point the nozzle where you want to weld and pull the trigger and it will weld. Household current will run a MIG welder Take a look at the plug on the welder if it will pug into a 110v outlet you are all set, but most likely you will need a 220v outlet and maybe as much as an electric dryer type outlet.
It takes a lot of practice to be a decent welder you also need to know what voltage and wire speed settings to use for a given thickness and type of material.
You don't mention shielding gas, if you are using a flux core wire you don't need it, but if you are using regular wire you do.
If I may make a suggestion, If you really want to learn how to weld, find a community college near you and take an introductory welding class. You will get a wealth of information and practice on different welding processes. The instructor will work with you and get you welding much better and faster than you will on your own. Most importantly you will get a lot of safety information.
This is a good introductory book:
