+What type of connectors are on each? What are the model numbers of each?

You can get VGA to HDMI cables but they won't handle audio and they will only give you VGA resolution. What you need is a 'VGA to HDMI converter' - do a Google for it as there are a number of different ones with additional functions/connections etc. Expect to pay around £40 for one.
