I would definetly suggest an arduino mega to simplify controlling that many things without extra hardware
from the looks of you are going to need alot of relays,and or ssr's to control all that with suitable drivers

Search Ebay for "logic mosfet". If you use low voltage lights (e.g. 12V or 24V), it's easy to do. For high voltages you could use photoMos relays, or a high DC voltage with high voltage mosfets.

A logic level mosfet like below might be of interest.
