I prefer the hidden USB so nothing comes out outside. Thank you

It's just a plug module - but you'll need a converter for the voltage as USB is 5V. The rear trim comes off with simple trim removal tools. (5) is the power lead for accessories and (6) is the 12V Lighter.

No you cannot take a 12v feed from the reversing light or brake circuit! These are specific circuits for the lighting and are not designed to provide a 12V power outlet.

You already have a 12V supply in the rear. Just use a 12V to USB adapter if you require USB power - something like this:
