Well, you haven't mentioned the file format of your existing map, so without that important detail, I can only suggest doing a Google Search for a program that will convert from whatever format your existing map is in (i.e. BMP, JPG, PNG) to KMZ.
Example: Suggested Search Syntax
Also (and this is meant to be a helpful tangent), don't use JPG as the format to which you save your maps while you are still in the process of editing them. Unlike BMP, PNG, TIF, and PSD which are "lossless" file types, the JPEG format loses quality each time you re-save it as it is a "lossy" file type. Therefore, it's fine to save a copy into JPG for posting on the web or sharing with others, but always go back to your lossless copy before making edits or adding new features.
Hope this helps, and please forgive the LMGTFY link... it was the best way I could think of to illustrate an effective search string. :)
Alright i have managed to make the globe that i have desired, thank you very much for the help. For anyone who may wish to use this thread in the future, use google earth. For a .jpg image, in the toolbar, there will be a button that says add image overlay. Select that, and next to the type box for the link, select browse, select your image, select "location", set north to (90° 0'0.00"N), Set south to (90° 0'0.00"S), West to (180° 0'0.00"W), and East to (180° 0'0.00"E). If everything goes right, you should have a globe of a custom world for yourself.
