You have a wire break in the line somewhere ... where the ignition main wire crosses the area where the headlight main wires are. Chaffing has caused a fusion there. A friend of mine had a Tempo that would start up if you blew the horn. No key necessary.

If by "dim headlights" you mean low-beams... the bulbs are bad and must be replaced.

It would not be a good idea. First it is illegal, second it can actually cause the computer to over adjust fuel and ignition timing and cause running issues.It would not be a good idea.
