Box Noob here and confused with what I need

Cupertino, November 14, 2021

I just moved into our first house and in the last 3 months I've added some HomeKit lights and accessories here and there. I really love the Phillips Hue lights, but as I'm sure everyone is aware, it's not perfect for the lights on the switches. Enter the Box switches. The problem I have, though, is that the lighting in our main areas is pretty funky. Lots of 3 way switches and lots of double tilt switch, triple switch, switch and dimmer etc. How does all this work with Cassette switches? Do I "need" a $ 60 switch for every regular switch in my house? For example, I have a board with 3 switches. The right side is a 3 way that controls the hall lights, in the middle is the kitchen, on the left is an accent lighting. Well, I really just need the middle switch to be on the HomeKit. Do I have to turn on the cable and set up a single box for a Cassette and change that triple switch into a double, and drywall, that space, etc.? Can you put 3 box switches in that place? Can a switch control multiple lights? Thank you in advance. Decent with technology, but not great with electrical work. So hopefully this post makes some sense!
