Nema is the standard used for configurations of the prongs. The Nema number provides the information.
What do you mean by "upside 3 prong"?
Here is the plug that is used with standard receptacles. It is a Nema 5-15P
Yes, that is standard on the microwave
Same as on any electrical appliance operating at 120 volts
Our plugs have the "G' part at the bottom. But, Nema 5-15P is a standard 120v, correct? We just plug the cord in upside down, correct?
Yes, that is correct.

5-15 is the key
