Keep in mind, while your diagram will work. It's an atypical installation, and could confuse any future electricians.

I'm not familiar with this particular switch, but usually black terminals are "common". however, as long as you've broken any tabs between the terminals, your diagram works just fine.

Do you want 2 switches and a receptacle in a single gang box, or do you want 2 switches in one single gang box and a receptacle in a different single gang box?

comment Did I wire my light fixture correctly?
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft The GFCI device can be anywhere in the circuit, as long as it protects the new fixture. However, you're correct that installing a combination GFCI breaker is probably the easiest option, as it provides protection to the entire circuit.

@C.R Leave it disconnected. If you follow NEC you'll have to either install a proper grounding conductor, or protect the outlet with a GFCI device.

comment Is there any reason why I should have a contractor get a permit himself instead of getting it on my own?
@DMoore Who can and cannot pull permits depends greatly on location. Some areas are more restrictive than others.

comment Can I connect two separate ducts systems together?
I don't think a near 100% duty cycle is healthy for the condensing unit, the blower motor, or nearly any other part of the system. There is no way to say for sure; based on the information provided, that doing this "won't hurt anything".
