comment How can I connect coaxial cables to my wall?
That last picture violates NEC 2008 400.8(6). Flexible cords and cables cannot be run through raceways. Works fine for coaxial, Ethernet, or other low voltage cables, not so good for power cords.

The big issue isn't during normal operation. The dangers come if there's a fire in the building. Codes are typically "minimum" safety rules. They don't make codes just to be jerks, there are reasons behind every code.

comment Should I triple up 2x6, or 2x8 to help level a floor?
It's not clear what you're trying to do. Rephrasing the question, and/or adding pictures might help folks understand what you're asking.

@petr Code or no code, this is not a good practice.

I'm not sure you can/should run it in the return "ducts" either. It's a fuzzy code section.
