I hope this is clear, otherwise there are books/papers that explain this better with figures. good luck.

The ghost-cell approach is one way to implement boundary conditions, and the approach agg describes works for any wall temperature (not necessarily zero), but is rather specific for cell-centered codes that use centered averages on the cell faces. You would need to give us some details about your numerical scheme, in particular about the way the fluxes on the cell faces are described, in order for us to tell you how to implement the boundary condition.

This is for a constant mesh spacing in the direction normal to the wall. If you have a varying mesh spacing, you need to adjust this formula (involves T_secondcell as well) so that the truncation error for the energy balance on that first cell is minimum. This formula works for setting tangential velocity as well, substituting v for T. So, if T_wall = 0 (an unusual boundary condition if T is in absolute units!), T_ghost is = - T_firstcell. A special case.
