MCP4822 is officially supported by WebIOPi 0.7.0., its just not documented in the wiki. For details look at source. For simple standard use, config would just look like this:

mymcp = MCP4822

MCP3202 is currently NOT supported. However, parts of that family are supported (e.g. MCP3204, MCP3208). With some knowledge and luck, you may be able to add MCP3202 as it looks to be a 2 channel version of MCP3204. Look at, maybe it is sufficient to add a subclass to MCP320X and add a specific __command__(...) to reflect the changed control bits position. For explanations on work/updates for WebIOPi drivers you can look at my drivers manual. However, some Python skill as well as understanding chip/SPI protocol specs is required.
