A wire splice is a specific type of connection between two wires that does not involve soldering.
One splice that would work is a western splice.
Yes as long as you use an approved splice, such as a wire-nut.
Yes, you splice a small length of 16 gauge wire to 18 gauge wire for a repair.

Splice uses stranded wires while joint uses solid wire.
The electrical code states that any splice in a wire, the insulation over the splice has to be equal to or greater than the insulation on that of the rest of the wire. So what ever type of splice that you use make sure that you insulate it well.
You can solder them after using a western splice connection. You can use a mechanical butt splice and you can connect the wires together with a wire nut after twisting the wires together. All you have to remember is that the insulation of the splice has to be equal to the wire insulation or greater.
Pulling the wire is a South African term for masturbation.
It is the same type as the western union splice, where the two wires are overlapping and wound back on the opposite conductor.
Try it see what happens... >:l Can you splice them? Yes. Should you splice them? No. It really all depends on what your over current protection is. If your #12 wire is on a 20 amp breaker, your #18 wire can melt and cause a fire without tripping the breaker. I do not know what is the amp rating of 18 gauge wire. -- Sparkfighter
