Is it ok to plug a lamp into the outlet on the back of a receiver?

The outlet should have a rating on it. Check the wattage to make sure it isnt too much. It shouldn't be a problem.

What type of lamp? Fluorescent lamps can add a bit of noise on the AC line, which would pollute your AC input to the receiver.

Listen closely to see if you can hear any hum/noise/sonic degradation. If not, enjoy. And, I wouldn't go above 60W, generally speaking.
