    Does anyone know if a PAL SNES works on an US TV? Specifically, an LG or Vizio TV?

    Most modern TVs can handle both NTSC and PAL signals.

    In that case you might need something like this.

    If you can find the TV's manual online it should tell you what video signals it supports.

    I can't find the manual online, but my LG TV model is 55LM6400.

    Also, what is the .bin file?

    Less than 5 minutes of Googling yielded this.

    It looks like you'll need a converter box.

    Also .bin files are containers, usually for disc images but can be used for game ROMs and the like.

    So you are saying the LG TV doesn't support PAL?

    Hard to say. PAL support may not be officially documented.
