To change the roof manually, you will need to edit the polygon it
references.  I would recommend making a copy of the polygon and change the
dimensions in there.  Then re-reference your roof polygon to the newly
created one.

To add exterior lighting, I always input it in terms of kW and not W/ft2.
To do this, you need to input it as a "direct load" in your electric meter.
There is a box for "exterior direct loads" and you can input the kW and
assign an exterior lighting schedule there.  I would also assign the enduse
as "exterior usage."

Both of these are down outside of the wizard.  Good luck.
