comment Why are GFCI systems typically in the receptacle instead of in the breaker?
There are jurisdiction where a house-wide GFCI breaker is mandatory (with a separate more sensitive GFCI for the "wet" rooms)

see if you can acquire/borrow a better voltage tester. Most DIY shops should have one.

comment why does my power keep going out to most of my house?
Get an electrician to find the issue, it could be anything from a faulty breaker to a short-circuit hidden in a wall. Not much we can do to help without more info.

comment How do I make ground connections at my receptacle boxes?
run a ground from the main panel to each box parallel to the each of the existing wires. If the 12-2 has a ground wire (yellow jacket or bare copper) use that.

comment Correct gauge of wire to power 2 ceiling lightnings
@Marty The 450/720V only refers to voltage, Denmark uses 220V I believe. According to a spec sheet I found it can easily carry more than 10 Amps (the rating of the breaker protecting it) which is 2200 Watts.
