Maybe you should take pics of the old bulb...but I don't think I've ever heard of metal halide in any sort of home lighting. Is this an outside pole light or something? If so, you'll probably need to replace the fixture completely.

I have never seen a LED bulb as a direct replacement for metal halide. I would just replace the fixture and get an LED.

Thank you guys. I'm such a layman.
sounds like it's a little complicated. I'm gonna have someone come over and get it done.
Thank you for your information. I appreciate it
