Default Headlight Issues

I have a 2008 Saturn Outlook XE. The inside glass covering on the low beam headlights is foggy/oxidized and I virtually drive in darkness. I have to replace the whole headlight assembly if I want to get that clear again. I do not know if my car has the HID light bulbs in it. How do I find that out? The manual says nothing about the wattage of the bulb I can have nor if it's HID or not. There is a huge difference in price between the headlight assemblies and I need to know if I'm getting the right one.
Also, does anyone know if I can put a cool white bulb in there as opposed to the warm white which yellows out. I also need to know the wattage I can handle in the car. I don't want to drain my alternator/battery or melt the housing with a high voltage light bulb.
I can't just get new bulbs because the covering is so damaged that it won't shine through. It will just reflect back on itself. Reminder: This is the low beam small round covering inside the headlight assembly, not the outer cover which is perfect and not scratched at all.
