You will need to splice the wires as it will be hard to find the right connector to attach to the harness wires. Use the wiring diagram for the car (get it at Alldatadiy.com) and the one that came with the Dual unit to figure out which wires connect to each other.
You won't ever. They make a universal harness. You should have a wire harness for your new radio only that was included with the radio. It should plug into the new radio and the other end will just be wires. Then you will need to go to a parts store, ( AutoZone, Oreilly's, Advance Auto, Etc) and but a radio wire harness for your truck. It will have a connector or two that plug into the harness that plugs into the back of your stock radio and the other end will be just wires. you will then connect the two harnesses together by matching wire color. ( EG: Purple to Purple, Gray with black stripe to Gray with black stripe, etc)
The best way is to get a stereo installation kit designed for your car. It will have the surround for the new stereo to fit where the stock stereo fit. Also, it comes with a wiring harness that you connect the new stereo to then it plugs in to the stock radio plug. Most local automotive stereo stores should carry them.
Well it all depends on how bad the wires were cut. If you bought a newer radio, they generally come with a harness. Basically a harness is a plug in with a bunch of cables running out the back of it. You can actually just connect the wires for the new radio straight to the wires from the car. A quick fix would just be to twist the wires together and put electrical tape around the bare wire showing.
