Though the wall vent removal

You had a concentric vent.

8in vent caps are available at Home Depot or Lowes for a few dollars. They are made of galvanized metal and will last a couple of years before they rust.

A local sheetmetal shop can make a stainless steel vent cap for you that wont rust for quite a while.

If you need a plate, same thing... measure it up, and have a local sheetmetal shop make it up.
