Can light light bulbs?
In respect to this, can light vs recessed light?
When making your decision, it is important to understand the differences between the two sources. General ceiling lights typically use incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs. With the combination of the low voltage bulbs and adjustable trims on the recessed cans, it is much easier to illuminate a room.
Similarly, can lighting options? Your main light bulb options include CFL, incandescent, LED, halogen, and R-type light bulbs.

Considering this, what size bulb for 6 inch can light?
For 5" cans, a BR30 will fit with a little space to all sides while a BR40 will fit with little to no space on the sides. For 6" cans, a BR30 may leave so much space between the bulb and trim that you don't care for the look, though this is a personal choice.
Is it better to use a lamp or ceiling light?
Generally a lamp uses fewer watts (power) but it really depends on the wattage of the lamps involved. E.g., if you have a table lamp with two 100W bulbs it obviously uses less power than a ceiling lamp with a single 100W bulb.
