1) Lights need to be fused to 5 amp max as that is rating of ceiling rose.
2) I projects there are diagrams of how they are wired basic live to rose and from rose to switch so rose not only holds lamp but is also a junction box.
Also a bit on my site http://www.ericpalmer.fsnet.co.uk/Lighting.html may help.
