Exclamation Help Identify These Bits and Pieces... Pics Included

Greetings from down under, I recently purchased a 1993 318is and need a bit of a hand with identifying a few bits and pieces under the hood and in the cabin, the list is as follows.

1. Loose plug in engine bay, passenger side (RHD)

2. Loose connector with 2 points also passenger side only -

3. Loose connector with 3 points on both passenger and driver sides -

4. Loose wiring running from passenger side wiring loom and runs under the plastic radiator cover to driver side (brown/yellow) -

5. Now I am aware that possibly the 3 prong connectors may of been for the fog lights as they are not connected but the seem to have a different socket-

6. An educated guess tells me that these are the switches for the fog lights... but why are there 2 of them?

7. What is the function of the S.E.M switch next to the shifter?

Now the previous owner has installed a new front bar and angel eyes head lights which may have caused some of the wiring to not be completely utilised..

8. I also have an issue with the left front indicator not working, I have replaced the globe and tried to fit the indicator housing from the left to right and the housing/globe seem to be o.k therefore the problem lies within the wiring?

9. I also have an issue with the wipers working intermittently or on "High", could someone advise whether this is a relay issue or the motor itself?

Any suggestions/clarifications would be highly appreciated. thanks.

There are two fog light switches, one for the front and the other for rear fog/rain light (like a bright running light for conditions in which the normal ones aren't bright enough). The switch by the shifter is likely to select transmission modes, like sport shift mode.
