Question about Eaton ARC FAULT CIRC BREAKER
Everytime I plug in my vacuum cleaner (Kenmore canister model) I trip the Eaton AFCI Braf breaker. Now it doesn't even work though I can flip the switch back to the on position

If you were to wire this circuit in RMC, IMC, EMT, OR steel armored cable, Type AC using metal junction boxes I believe you could connect your low voltage transfomer on a circuit without AFCI protection. It would have to be permanently wired, not plugged in. see NEC artical 210.12 (B) Dwelling Units.Exception No.1. I'm not sure how hard it would be to install a new home run to your panel from where the fixtures are. I would imagine these are track lights? Any device that maks an arc inside is a problem. Brush type motors and some dimmers can be trouble too.
