Can this be done ? ie can 2 ceiling roses be operated by one switch? where and how would you cut into existing circuit if this is possible ?

Hi agn, not much hope!
sorry but if wiring is '3 plate loop-in' ie three cables at light then that is the only place you have sw-line & Neutral together. It might be possible some other way but would need a leckie to look at house layout as no standard wiring methods used, bw SPARX
