He wants to replace the stock POS dome with a new dome like a mustang or explorer dome light.

The early 2004 manual shows wiring for the map lights but I have heard that it is not there on the 04~05s.

The dome light is on the black/light blue. Ground screws directly to the ceiling. That should be the same as your original dome light. The map lights should be on light green/orange which you will need to run. Go to the dimming module and tee a wire off of the LG/OR and run it up to the light. You will need to get creative but you should be able to add a ring terminal and attach it to the unused maplight screw.

All of this assumes that your new dome/map assembly will fit your headliner contour and that the mounting screws line up.
