No, not directly. You can buy Halogen bulbs that are made to be used in a standard light socket. They are for sale at the standard outlets. I have a number of these in my house, and I use these in some of my light sockets. Just for you information I have one in my lap as I am typing this it is a Philips Master 120 Volts 60 Watt bulb. The only condition is that you have to get a specific bulb for dimmer circuits, a standard halogen does not work with dimmers. The bulbs have ceramic insulator protecting a balast circuit, the dimmer bulbs have a rather large ceramic end, that is sometimes enclosed inside the standard light globe. All the standard bulb manufacturers should sell these. You just cannot use Halogen bulbs in enclosed lights unless they are made for this purpose, as is the dimmer variant I wrote about.

Can you use halogen in older cars for headlight bulbs?

Almost all cars made in the last 30 to 40 years will use halogen car bulbs. If you have a vehicle older than this, the chances are you will not be using a standard bulb size that is easily available anyway. In this case, the easiest option is to replace the bulb holder with ones that will fit into the headlamp housing - you may need to modify the housing and cabling to suit. The other option is a complete replacement headlamp unit, which mat be available as an aftermarket upgrade, especially for more popular classic cars. Lastly, if standard halogen bulbs are not bright enough, have a look at premium halogen/xenon based filament bulbs like Ring Xenon Max, or upgrade to full HID lighting with an upgrade kit.
