    Tesla usually blocks/prevents salvaged/damaged vehicles from SuperCharging on their network without their say-so (fee) you usually can't charge...
    For maps/service, that may be a connectivity issue and region lock? Not sure
    A charger - you can purchase anywhere online... You can go with a standard J1772 charger and get an adapter to plug into the Tesla connector, or, find a Tesla Wall Charger or Tesla Mobile Charger...

    European cars use a different shape of plug from US cars, mainly to allow three phase charging over there. A US Spec car won't be able to interface with the EU superchargers without an adapter - which Tesla has been seen using internally but has never been sold that I'm aware of.

    I think your only real option for DCFC at this time is to buy a US/Japanese CHAdeMO adapter and charge at CHAdeMO stations. (Because of the different plug shapes, an EU spec CHAdeMO adapter is useless to you.)

    You should be able to charge at most charging stations by using a Type 2 to Type 1 adapter and the J1772 (type 1) adapter that should have come with the car, though you'll be restricted to single phase and thus likely around 7 kW in most cases.

    That's the best way to charge the car quickly, yes. It should allow ~45 kW charging on a suitable station, which would mean empty to full in about two hours.

    That's not how people normally use EVs except on road trips, though - normally we charge to 80 or 90% at home overnight on AC chargers.

    That adapter allows you to fast charge the car using a DC fast charge station - a public charging station that converts 480V AC into 400V DC and feeds that directly to the car. I'm not aware of anyone who has one of those at home.

    A wall charger and the portable cord that comes with the car are both glorified extension cords - they pass main AC power to the car's onboard charger module, which then converts it to 400V DC and charges the car. The car can handle more or less any input from 100V to 277V at any frequency just fine. For that you have two options.

    The devices sold in Europe will work fine through some adapters - you need type 2 to type 1, and then the J1772 (type 1 by another name) adapter that should have come with the car.

    Or you can buy US spec equipment - a US wall charger is only designed to connect to a single phase pair, but I think it'll work fine within that constraint.

    If the car came with a "second generation" mobile connector, you can get special ends for that which match european connectors here:

    European CEE 32A 6h Type 023 IP44 Blue Commando (Caravan Mains) Adapter for Tesla Model S/X/3 Gen 2

    If you're comfortable working with electricity, you might be able to make your own adapter to take whatever plug to have and connect it to a US receptacle to plug the cord the car hopefully came with into, but that could be risky if you aren't sure what you're doing.

    I'll be really surprised if you have 380V at home. If you do, you'd still need the CHAdeMO charger in addition to the adapter - the big external box that converts it to 400V DC before feeding it to the car.

    Yes, the wall charger and mobile connector will work on 120, 220, or 240V. One of them will almost certainly be your best option for charging at home.

    I'm not quite sure what you're looking for or how to help you. I don't know anything about electrical standards in Ukraine.

    A US Spec X will charge successfully from anything on the page you linked - aside from the CHAdeMO adapter, they're all basically just extension cords providing wall power to the car to charge with.

    Here's the installation manual for a US Spec wall connector, if that helps?

    I really don't know what you're dealing with over there. The Wall connector is generally a pretty good choice for most people, but you'd probably want an electrician to install it.

    I think you really need someone who knows what's involved over there better to talk to. Maybe the folks from teslasevice Ukraine mentioned a few posts back?
