Most areas allow live-in homeowners to do their own electrical work, but you still need permits/inspections. That said, if you are asking, you should let the pro do the work. Running wires in existing finished construction can be iffy. It usually involves cutting some holes in drywall to get from point A to point B, and requires a lot of assumptions about the construction. If any of those assumptions are wrong, add a lot to the bill.
