Adding fuses in panel/piggy backing fuses

I have two questions pertaining to the fuse box and fuses in my 95 mustang.

1) Can additional fuses be added to the fuse box, as I see there are two open round open slots inside the fuse box. Or would an external fuse box need to be installed?

2) I've run my gauge illumination wires to the fuse box, and wrapped the bare wire around a 15amp fuse for the headlights, so that when I turn on the headlights, it automatically turns on the gauge light. It has been this way for years, however is this proper procedure?

1) consider a "add a circuit" fuse holder.
