I am looking for a diagram of a 3way switch setup. The power is coming to the light. i want to go to the switch and then to several lights and then the other 3way switch. And is it possible for me to branch off a line at the far end but not be on the 3way switches.

thanks

NO....run another line

It's unclear: are these 2 existing 3-way switches for this light?

And in most locations, code would not allow you to run another branch line off of the end of this. You should install a separate branch circuit.
