The electrons come from water.

In the light dependent stage water is split into hydrogen ions (H+), electrons and oxygen.

The electrons are passed on to chlorophyll, the H+ ions combine with NADP to form NADPH and the oxygen is released.

Why light is needed for photosynthesis in detail?

Light is the source of energy used by plants to do reactions that normally would not complete by themselves. More specifically, light is captured by two photosystems, the electrons from which are then used as sources of energy to do photosynthesis.

Does Respiration uses sunlight as it's energy source?

No it does not. Respiration gets its energy from ATP(produced in photosynthesis when electrons travel through the electron transport chain)
