Anyone got a link for those metal bars that you can use to join the ends of ceiling boards together without going into the joist ? .

Stops the board flexing. Could just use 50x25 batten
Not when overboarding . Want to see if it can be used by just putting up full boards without measuring to every joist . Most old houses are imperial and there is too much waste and cuts

Yes you can. Mostly you use it on really high metal partition walls in industrial sites. You have to use it across the end of every board on the staggered joints. Highest wall I had to use it on was 10m in a brewery.
