If you use sRGB as your working color space in PS, colors from your capture will automatically be clipped to fit into the sRGB space when you import images if you set up your import options appropriately. With LR you can't set a working space (it uses a default space which is wide gamut very similar to ProPhoto RGB). However, you can always export your images to sRGB for output.
That being said, I would advise you to work within a bigger space like Adobe or ProPhoto. You can always export an image to sRGB while working within the bigger space, but the reverse is not possible.
If the wide color gamut is enabled on the monitor must I switch the camera, LR and PS to RGB Mode so pictures look correct? Or can the camera, LR and PS still be used on srgb color space...kinda confused on this. Don't want to buy the monitor if I'll have to be bouncing between srgb and RGB to take full advantage of the wide color gamut that I don't know if I need or not.
Assuming your monitor has been calibrated and profiled, and the profile has been loaded properly into the OS, your images will be displayed accurately on the monitor by any Adobe color managed software you use, within the limitations of the monitor's gamut. Having a wide gamut display will help in this regard because your capture device (camera) may be capable of recording colors that are fall outside the sRGB space and cannot be displayed properly on a monitor that only covers the sRGB gamet.
