    Weights and Relative "Rest"

    If I lift weights only twice a week, say Tues and Thurs, is it okay to do bodyweight exercises on Mon through Friday (5days)?

    Does that interefere with my "resting period"?

    Should I go for fatigue and soreness after every weightlifting session?

    Why would you do the bodyweight exercises at all?
    I don't really see the extra benefits of doing them on top of your weightlifting.

    I need functional fitness.

    I think the best thing to do is to do what feels best. If you lift weights one day and you wake up the next and your body is telling you not to go work out, listen to it. The general consensus about weight training is to go until failure. Some people only have to go to failure once to get a good workout, I usually go till failure two or three times.

    Alright,
    While some theories like Periodization, advocate light and heavy days, and BW exercise would fall in the "light days" category.
    It is NOT essential and may even be undesirable to train on a rest day, especially if you are doing MA AND ST.

    Also, if you're looking for gains in SIZE, you may want to cut down as much as possible on your aerobic training. And eat.

    Yep, but that would ruin your functional fitness.
