05 WK fog light wiring question

Is it possible to wire the factory fogs in such a way that when I upgrade them to 75wats aftermarket units, I can still use the factory switch but use better wiring?

You can do this with a relay and your own larger gauge wires. They also sell kits for this. They were often used for after market HID kits, where you wanted to run the lights from the battery while still using the factory switch.

Innovited Universal relay wiring harness for all HID single kit H1, H3, H4, H7, H8, H9, H10, H11, H13, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007, 5202, 880, 884 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XKK74Y2..._RH1hEbHH45PQ7

Running your own relay to power a bigger draw is not difficult. Your current switch becomes the trigger for the relay. The relay then supplies power to the new lights. This lowers the demand on the OEM switch.
