Yes you need to staple, and securing the new wire against the foundation and turning into the wall will not pass inspection either. I will draw out what will pass tomorrow.

Well I did some work today, and while it probably isn't up to code as far as stapling goes, it works, so at least I am making the connections properly.

I got a 4"x4" j-box and did the splice. So I have 1 incoming feed, and two branches coming out. One continues on to the rest of the circuit, one goes to another 1-gang box with a switch. I hooked up a bulb socket temporarily to the switch, and it works perfectly. Thanks for all the advice!

How do I go about securing the new wire along the foundation? I planned to continue the conduit along the foundation wall and turn it in towards the switch along the studs, that way no wire is directly up against the foundation.
