I would always recommend calling an electrician to carry out the work but for your knowledge, yes a two way switch can always be used on a one way lighting system.

Yes you can use 2 way switches as a one way switch.
Use common and L1 to use as a one way switch.
However a warning that pull cord dimmer switches are know not to last that long.

It doesn't have to be the Common and L1, Common and L2 would work too. It doesn't matter.

You can indeed use a 2-way switch as a single way switch. Connect the incoming live wire to the common terminal and the switch-feed wire to terminal L1.
