So. I'm hoping to hang decorative carriage lights on each side of my 9 foot garage door. Can I power those from tapping into the junction box, of one of the lights, in the ceiling of the garage? And,still have them on their own seperate switch in a gang box? Would that pass national code? I'm thinking yes I can, yet still I want your input also.

Yes if there is constant power at the ceiling light for you to join to?

I would grab whatever you can easily grab a hold of for a power source. Coach lights outside the garage are pretty inconsequential, so whether you power from an existing light circuit or an outlet circuit isn't going to matter.
