You can't instance lights. You could link the properties of lights to a single light or to nulls and then control multiple lights that way.

Not natively but you can with Advanced Placement plugin. See the LW-Third-Party forum thread.

You can do it with expressions. Here's a site talking about the syntax of expressions.

Thanks! BUT Advanced Placement plugin's video seem to not support lighting placement?

It depends on if you absolutly need to edit already positioned lights and control them, or if you can set them up from scratch.
You can set up a light to be affected with envelopes and proximity modifier in the graphs modifier tab.

You can also clone one light that is set up with nodal motion, see Bryphi77 tutorials on that...

You could just group them in a logical way in the scene editor, then you select a group and edit them all at once. Nearly every change you make affects all the selected lights. If you want to place them in a more advanced way look for luxigons in the manual.
