comment How to rescue exterior door paint job?
Oh, I understand you don't need to take off multiple layers. I'm just saying that this will do the trick. To be honest, this didn't really take all that much time and I think you'll be happier with the results if you just take off the paint. I would also look at the manual for the door and see if it wants to be primed first.

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.
