Great news! I can help you with all those things for your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.

First let's start with a hitch for your vehicle. I recommend the 2-inch Class III etrailer # e98903 hitch. This 2-inch receiver hitch will be more compatible with accessories on the market. It is also compatible with the Limited, LX, and Touring models.

For the wiring for the cargo carriers lights like the Pro Series # 63153 with LED light kit # 98174LED, you will need a 4-way connector on your vehicle.
For Limited, Touring L, and Touring L Plus models you'll want # 118712.
For LX and Touring models you'll want # 118723.

Lastly, let's pick out a bike rack. It sounds like with your vehicle you will more than likely be transporting more than 2 bikes, so I recommend the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465. This bike rack can not only carry 4 bikes but it can also swing away from the vehicle while loaded for access to the rear cargo area. It comes with a hitch lock to secure your rack to the hitch and an integrated cable lock for the bikes. I have linked a video of this bike rack for you to check out.

It's important to note that when transporting alternatively framed bikes like children's or women's bikes you use an adapter bar like # UB01 to mount the bikes properly. This will not only help with the mounting process they will provide you with the best and safest clearance while transporting the bike to a fro.
