Well, if you just want light, you can always put in the good ol' 'Studio Light' from the library that ships with Revit.  This is a global.  I found that most of the lights that ship with Revit leave jagged lines even under the highest render settings.  This is usually because of the modeling of the housing around the light source.  I haven't done much modeling with light housings so I'm not sure what works best.  As far as adding ceiling lights, it's as simple as adding any component.  If the light family is ceiling based, then you'll need a ceiling object to host it (durr).  There are some recessed can lighting families that ship that will at least get you started

 

Hope this gets you started.  Best of luck!

first of all your ceiling lights have to come in in the ceiling views, to get a feel for it I would start with some recessed can lights and you could also experiment with studio lights, in your rendering tab when you set up the scene got to settings and set it to be an interior light rendering, then go to your lighting settings in the settings dialog box and un check the sun as one of your light sources and that way you get the sun out of your radiosity calculation

I hope this helps

Just wanted to note that the ceilling lights can be place in ANY view, but it is easiest to place them correctly in a RCP view.

 Also be sure you do actually run a Radiosity before you Raytrace.  This will add the more photorealistic touches to the rendering.
