I still don't think I understand.  Emacs is perfectly capable of
fetching URLs, so why would you need wget?  If you base this on wget,
you will need to cope with complexities that you had better avoided:
how to download a program, where to find it, how to install it so it's
on PATH, etc. etc.  Please believe me that arranging for a simple Lisp
command that fetches a URL and saves it to a file is orders of
magnitude simpler.
