Hailing at sea

When traveling off shore and coming upon a large commercial ship at night, how do you hail it to learn its direction, intentions,and whether is sees you. Do you hail it, identify yourself and say "holding for instructions on channel xx"?

Also, I was sailing into charleston on a busy day and the captain called a security, identified his vessel, and said something like "holding for traffic on 14." Was this right?
