yes, you do. you just wire the second light in parallel to the first. i.e. continue the hot (blk) and neutral (wht) & ground wires from the first light to the second.

Depends on the configuration. If you are trying to put the two lights between the switches then you need four wires between the lights.
If you wire it up as one light then tap off that one light to the additional light no problem.
