Looks like single phase 110v on two legs (across makes 220v for phils appliances).

Each leg to ground is 110v.

Will it burn the house down if I rewire a couple plugs with 110v to ground?

and what is up with circuits? 20A should be 14ga, 30A 12ga. Anything goes?

I enjoy doing it myself here in the US, and also mainly because it's too expensive to hire anybody in the States unless it's totally outside what I can do.

In the PI it's too cheap NOT to hire somebody. I can tell you I've compared supply costs in person in both the States and PI and they are comparable. I was about to send a balikbayan box with all the boxes, outlets, fixtures, wire, conduit etc and its not worth it.
