LED's draw very little current. I have 4 footwell LED strips hooked to my grey wire with no problems what so ever. I wouldn't hesitate to add 2-3 times that many LED's.

Yep, splice that fuse holder in line on the feed off the Grey wire. You could connect one end of the fuse holder to the grey wire and then simply connect the 12V+ to the other end of the fuse holder. I would use as small of fuse as possible. For what you are looking at, you can probably use a 5amp. If it blows, you are probably trying to draw too much power with the lights or there is a wiring problem. If it is just drawing too much power, then you would probably be better off using a relay but I don't think that will be necessary for your situation.

That sounds like the yellow is a relay trip wire. Relays are a simple electromechanical device that either opens or closes a circuit. Just google them for information.
