comment Can I convert my front intermediate light (with only 1 wire) to a junction box with live, neutral and ground wires?
I'm not sure i understand. There is probably 1 wire leaving the fixture and 1 wire leaving it. These would be black and white, but on old old wiring the insulation may have discolored.

comment Do 240V receptacle use the same connectors as 120V receptacles for the same amperage?
Also, if you're asking if there exists a plug/receptacle that could be either 120 or 240, depending on the whim of the installer, the answer is no, any particular plug is either standardized at 120 or 240.

I can't believe there is a garage with no windows and doors- what would you do during a power outage?

comment Can I use two wire nuts instead of one to connect 6 wires inside a 3-gang box?
@cowguy All things being equal (which of course, they never are), I'd use the one large one instead of 2 smaller ones. But that's my opinion, and it holds as much weight as you want it to.

comment Should a concrete slab slope toward my house?
Again, at a very high level, you do not want water in certain places, inside a house is one of them. Without any more details, no, I'd say this is not ok, but again, we're not there to examine the details.
