Fishing wire

Just found out that the house we purchased need new wiring in the kitchen. The electrician could not find where anything was coming from or going to. I have the knowledge on how to do this and usually do it before putting up walls. The kitchen is in good shape besides the electric. Here is my questions, is there some tool I can use to snake the wire to a light in the center of the kitchen ceiling and through the walls? I am going to be pulling old wire if poosible and adding a new breaker. Any other advice would be greatly appricated. Thank you in advance for your help.

if you are replacing old wire, can you not attached the new wire to the end of the old wire, then pull old wire through?

I am not sure the previous owner had wires all over the place. The electrician could not track where any of the wires were going. Some of the old wire is bulb and tube so I am not sure what I might run into.
