So, I built myself a counterflow wort chiller (see diy section) and I was wondering - How do you get that near boiling wort into the chiller ???

Gravity or a pump.

Bulkhead drain in the kettle or metal racking cane will connect to the CFC with some thermoplastic or silicone tubing. Please don't use cheap vinyl tubing. You're asking for trouble.
