As far as i know (and this is rumours) there's several things to do

Firstly in eacg mission you'll get a kill count (like mission 1, kill 100 grunts)

Then a special item like a black box or such will appear.

After you've picked up the black box the skull will appear on the map.This is just what i've tried to make out of the garbled miscommunications in the forums, it may be that its different to each mission.

Hope that helps in some way :S

Once you've completed the optional kill so many of a specific unit, the skull will appear on the map. A notification will briefly appear on the mini-map when you have completed the objective.

There is a black box already located on each level.
The skulls have to be unlocked by, like Parallel_Raven said, completing the bonus objective, usually a kill count of some kind.
The skull will then spawn at a certain point on the map and will ping its location for a couple of seconds on the minimap. The spawn location is always the same.
How ever just completing the bonus objective is not enough, once the skull has spawned you need to have a unit go and pick it up.

From what I know of the game, and have seen. The skull appears after you complete the secondary objective to get the achievement for that mission.
In mission one, get the achievement: Everything's better with bacon, and the skull will appear.
In mission two, get: Endless fun, and the skull appears.
Don't forget, you must pick it up before the mission ends.

Like Cole said, you have to complete all the secondary objectives for the skull to appear on each level. The black box on the other hand is just slyly hidden.

Like rinzero said, to get the skull to appear, you ONLY need to get the certain amount of kills secondary mission. After you do this, a notification alert will appear on the mini-map, which will tell you where the skull is. Just so you know, quite a few of the skulls will require flying units or a pelican transporter to reach.
