Re: Some wiring questions for a remodel prodject.
Short answer is 'yes' to both your questions.
The wires do not need to be secured in walls where the wires are fished (like you did), and running a new wire up for the lights is perfectly acceptable.
As much of a problem as it will be, I'd suggest carefully examining the wiring in the ceiling to make sure that it is 'safe', meaning if it is the existing wiring, that it has not been damaged by all the crawling around.
The most powerful weapon in the world is ignorance. Politicians exploit it to achieve almost anything they want.
