Hi, your questions are hard to answer and I also wonder how English grammar really works.
For the first question, it was just a difficult sentence for me. I would rather say something like "John came home today and planned to watch some sitcoms with a bottle of beer".
It is not okay to use "to plan" in your sentence because there could not be two verbs within one sentence, basically speaking.
As for "Wishing you life long happiness", it sounds good to me. However, I would say "Wish you life long happiness" instead.
Some examples: Wish you Merry Christmas! Wish you happy birthday. It is rare to hear somebody says "Wishing you Merry Christmas!", isn't it?
"Let's + simple verb " is the pattern having a implication of proposition.
go + verb-ing e.g. go shopping, go hiking, go jogging, etc.
Grammatically speaking, "Let's go celebrating you promotion" fits the pattern. Having said that, I heard people say "Let's go play some volleyball". I will leave this to a grammar guru to answer.
Lastly, be careful of the use of suggest.
Correct: I suggest that you go to the seventh floor…
Incorrect: I suggest you go to the seventh floor…
Pronouns can never follow "suggest, recommend, etc." , but exceptions apply.
"use" in the sentence here is a noun, not a verb.

"Wishing you xxxx" is usually used in writing...which means "I am wishing xxxx "
In daily conversation, most people say "wish you xxxxx"
