Is there a theory for this?

The way I like to play is melodic ascending and descending patterns with scales that change around a lot similar to the Holy Wars (Megadeth) acoustic guitar solo or the All My Love (Led Zeppelin) keyboard solo. The style I mean specifically is where it's not way too fast and each note is clear, how do I study that, or what are more songs that have sections like that?

As far as theory goes you've already described what you're looking for:

Learn to play those songs/parts first. Maybe that'll help you with coming up with your own ideas. Use your ears.

I can probably play them better than the original artists who created them, which is why I'm looking for more songs with sections like it. There are guys like Malmsteen that wrote a lot of sweeping stuff but I find it very... sterile and not very musical as where Holy Wars and All My Love sounds so good and when I improvise over them people are blown away.

Just do a complete harmonic and melodic analysis of the parts.
