Yes as long as you stay within your local code. Usually a combination of lights and receptacles cannot exceed ten total. Do not wire any light to a circuit that requires a dedicated circuit, such as a refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.

Typically residential and many commercial applications use a 15 amp service for lighting circuits. They use 14 AWG wire.

Usually 15A or 20A, but it depends on the wire used.

No, you can never mix wire sizes in a circuit.

Number 14 for lighting circuits, Number 12 for convenience outlets, and Number 10 for certain large or motorized appliances.

A new outlet (running new wire) or replacing an old one (wires already there)? Shut off the Power to that Receptical, diconnect the receptical, and reconnect the New receptical using the Wires from the one you replaced. Then turn the power back on and Test it with a Tester!
