#Pb^0 + Cu^(2+) + 2Cl^(-1) → Pb^(2+) + 2Cl^(-1) + Cu^0#


#Pb + CuCl_2 → PbCl_2 + Cu# is the overall reaction equation.

Without looking at the electrochemical series I will assume that this reduction of copper by lead is possible, because it is the question.

An”ionic equation” is just the ions in solution during a reaction. A “net ionic” equation is just the ions actually taking part in the reaction.
