Installing a range hood
I currently have an over the range microwave that i installed replacing a range hood. At that time i wired in a GCFI socket for the microwave to plug into. However, as im now moving house i will be taking this with me and replacing it with a range hood. (Too new and expensive to leave).

How do i wire the range hood. The old range hood that i still have has two white wires and one black.

Can i add a plug to it? or, does it have to be wired directly (hard wired?)

I assume all permanent mount vent hoods are designed to be hardwired, and can't accommodate a plug and outlet. I installed my Vent-a-Hood brand hood liner two years ago, and the only possible installation method was hardwiring.
