wire is one of those things that all comes down to preference. i personally prefer using ribbon cable. i've had great success with it. others, however, don't like ribbon cable, claiming it is too fragile and brittle. i've never had that issue. i know people who use controller cord cable, but every time i've tried, it's failed. lol! so, it really just all depends on what you're comfortable working with. obviously, anything carrying a +v line should be a slightly thicker wire.
For your power jack anything that you have both the male and female ends works fine. In chevy's pic you can see that she's using the power jack from a PSOne screen (female) and a PSOne power supply (male) to power the screen and NES
I don't have a PSOne charger, I bought the screen separately. Should I buy this then to use for testing before I hook up batteries?

getting a psone a/c adapter would be a good idea. as it's a good 7.4v, you can test many projects with that voltage.
as to what plug end you want on the smart charger, your best bet is to go for the alligator clips one. as it'll save you a few dollars. you will then chop off the alligator clips and wire up the barrel to your batteries. can go into greater detail when you are at that step.
