You should take a look at PlaneTalk which was developed by Kirk. You'll find it will answer a lot of your questions.

Another approach is what mset3 mentioned, where you play a particular set of notes that suit the chords you're playing. This method is more naturally melodic because you're always playing notes that fit.

learn some rules of harmony - how chords are constructed and how they relate to other chords - and then go back and look at scales in relation to the chords.
Scales are very useful but often taught in a very unproductive way; we tend to be just shown some shapes and told to go for it...and it sounds like someone running a pattern up and down. Once you start to see how scales overlay with their relative chords you can use them to much greater musical effect.
