It is located beside the lever changes

When the car is to walk normally in D, if I switch the S button it increases acceleration and runs much when the switch button E this cancels the action of S, M button changes the gears but not the engine struggling.

I'm gonna say that "s" stands for sport mode which gives ur car more issuable power then "d" which is the efficient way of driving for better gas mileage. As for "m" I believe it stands for manual, such as if you got stuck in snow and you had it in "d" the car would go through unwanted gear changes as you were trying to get out. If you put it in "m" when you were stuck, this would tell the computer to hold it in a higher gear so u could produce the most torque without a gear change. I'm not entirely sure but I could be wrong ...just trying to help and as for the "e" I have no idea

Your pretty much correct. The "M" does stand for manual. What it does in an automatic transmission is force the transmission to remain in that gear. This is normally used when towing up hills, or when stuck. However driving with it stuck in one gear is incredibly hard on the transmission and should be only used when really needed.
