comment Proper method to send wiring through the roof?
This is basically an improvised weatherhead, except that a weatherhead seals abound the wires. You can pick up a proper weatherhead online for ~$10.00 or so, and 1 1/4" rigid nonmetallic conduit for ~1.00/ft.

comment Will I have to install new cables when converting from a SD CCTV system to HD?
The problem with this question, is that it completely depends on the equipment you choose. Some equipment may work with your existing wiring, while others will not. Without knowing what equipment you're installing, it's impossible to know what type of cabling will be required. Your best option, is to do a bit of shopping and see what's available. If you want to avoid installing new cabling, shop for equipment that can work with the existing cables.

comment Is it acceptable to splice a circuit in two opposite directions for outdoor recepts/lighting?
If I posted the entirety of chapters 1-4 of NEC, I don't think that would fall under fair use.

Usually folks who buy $2 million homes, don't do any repairs themselves. DIY is more commonly a poor mans game. So it's not common for higher end homes to come with manuals and documentation (at least not where I'm from).

There is no problem with what you want to do. Though if I posted all the relevant code sections, I don't think it would be considered "fair use" anymore. See NEC chapters 1-4.
