Basic power supply questions

I am trying to work on my power supply. Is the output for the power supply AC or DC? What is a good output voltage and amperage for fusion?

You need DC, although you may be able to rectify AC.

20 to 40 kV and around 20 to 50 milliamps seems to be adequate for most people to start with.

There are plenty of sources for what you are looking for, and since yours' are the most basic of questions they should not take more than a few minutes to find.
