Today is the second day of Rosh Hashana, and it happens to be Friday. The holiday will end after Shabbat begins. Should we light candles today?

Yes, we should.
But I don't understand how can you ask this question on second day of Rosh Hashana. Using computer is forbidden on yom-tov.
Yes, we always light Shabbat candles, and at the usual time (non-primary source). The only time a holiday affects candle-lighting is that on the second day of a two-day holiday, so long as the second day is not also Shabbat, you don't light the second-day candles until dark so as not to encroach the first day.
For Shabbat immediately after a holiday, or for the second day of a holiday, light the candles from a pre-existing flame (such as a pilot flame or long-burning candle lit before the holiday).
