There is another thread just started on the exact same subject. If I recall the 850 foglights were round and there was a cutout in the bumper for it. Worth checking the other thread for that.

Our Volvo guru and friend Richard has a Youtube video on fitting foglights, but it mostly shows V/S70 but they are similar:

One last thing. The foglight you show is for a 94 or older model. 95 is round. Check on Skandix website. This link is to the 94 and older on their website:

Fog light from the 1st picture is for '92-94 850.
They have different bumpers(headlights,side lights,tail lights...etc).

2nd picture with fog light in the bumper is round fog light(spot light,projector) for '95-'97 models.
