For your purposes, a roll bar is overkill. For most trikes, the easiest thing to do is just mount a rack and then run some PVC pipe up the rack to attach the lights.
I wouldn't bother with lights for daytime riding. Comments motorists and others have led me to believe that even though I run a NR universal tail light, it only marginally improves visibility. On the other hand, a safety flag makes a huge difference. For night time riding, the light is absolutely essential. If you are riding in a lot of traffic, mounting the light up high as you are suggesting will make a big difference.
