a little help needed Can't Post

I do not have a full set of the HOME, so I am a bit confused on some things in the SIL. I have read it many times but come back to these things. Tolkien refers to many stories in the SIL as they were written from songs and poems. I know Tolkien was quite familiar with story poems of various western european origin. Did he actually write the story poems/songs out and the adapt the material into the SIL? If so, are they written out in the Volumes of HOME that I just don't have?

To Date I own:
The SIL,
The Lost Road
Book of Lost Tales 1 and 2
Lays of Beleriand
The Sahping Of Middle Earth
Unifinshed Tales

The Hobbit
Tolkien Miscelanny

Also is the Entire HOME published in a box set by someone? Any recommendations.
