Maybe it's easier if you describe which minor mode you want and under
which circumstances.

For example, to enable auto-fill (it's a minor mode) for all
text-like modes (major modes), do this:

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'turn-on-auto-fill)

Other minor modes might not have a turn-on function.  (Does auto-fill
turn you on? ;-)  So you have to write it yourself:

(defun luca-turn-on-foo-mode ()
  (foo-mode 1))

Let's say you want to enable foo-mode for C++ mode, then you need the
above, plus:

(add-hook 'c++-mode-hook 'luca-turn-on-foo-mode)
