So if I add a relay to make its own circuit, triggered by the dome light wires, it shouuulddd work?

What size fuse should that be? Its 4 of a brighter strip, then 2 of a normally bright strip, then 2 half size normally bright strips.
Question #1 yes.

Question #2 The definition of brighter doesn't mean much.

Since I do not know how much amperage each LED strip draws, which you have 3 different types, sizes, excreta.
I would be very conservative and use a in-line 5 amp fuse installed with-in 1 foot of the fuse box or battery terminal, than 14 gauge wire to relay terminal #30.
Then run 14 gauge wire from relay terminal 87 to your LED lights. JMO.

14 gauge wire can handle a maximum 15 amp load to up to 20 feet. Always use a lower amp. fuse when possible and a shorter length of wire.
