Here's a NEMA straight blade chart.  The receptacle should have a tee-shaped slot and a straight slot, plus ground (NEMA 6-20R), and will accept a 6-15 plug as well as the 6-20 plug you have.  The plug is as you described, but be aware that the 125V version looks like it but is a mirror image (won't plug into a 250V receptacle, and vice-versa).  Just make sure you have the right one (should be marked "250V")

Just to repeat what's already been repeated, both conductors are hot, so it doesn't matter which lugs they go on, as long as it's not the green/ground lug.

Thanks so much for getting my back!

Yes: 2 pole 20amp breaker and handle.
