Can a portable air con unit be plugged into a wall?

I’ve just bought a portable air con unit (Igenix IG9900) and currently am putting the extension hose out the window. I’d like to have wall holes and fixtures (vents) fitted in a couple rooms instead so I can just wheel it between rooms and plug the hose up to wall.

How big is the hole in the wall for the air con unit?

A second but a very unique alternative to approaching this problem is by venting the portable unit through another room.
