The cable is usually adjusted under the car. If the E-Brake is not holding and needs adjusting, this is a sign that the rear brakes need replacing.

How soft do you have to hit the breaks on a car to make them flash?

That depends on the individual vehicle. There is an adjustable electric switch under the dash that is actuated by the brake pedal movement. Normally this switch can be adjusted from having the brake lights on all the time to never having them come on at all. Obviously the correct adjustment is to light the lights when the pedal has moved a short distance but before the brakes are actually being applied.
