I have taken a look but can't see anything! Will I have to remove anything more than the access cover to the rear right light?

Isn't the factory socket situated directly under the boot light in a Mark IV? (seen in some various photos -mainly US Golfs).I found my loom for it but there appears to be a metal bar under the boot light where the socket would go ( no locating hole in metal bar for the socket). Does it have to be drilled out to fit the socket, therefore giving it some support when you plug something into it?

As long as you don't need to run more than 10 Amps between the two of them yes. Ideally straight from the battery through a 10A fuse.

I fitted mine into the bottom of the removable panel for the rear light. It's stiff enough to support the socket and it looks OK there.

Yes, that's where mine is.

Just for info. It appears a two wheel drive golf does not have that metal side support bar under the light. It just has a plastic welded rectangle on the back of the carpet to reinforce the socket area.
