It sounds like you have multiple electrical issues that will likely require extensive diagnosis. Check your fuses, ensure they are in place and good. Otherwise, that is a little more complicated of a diagnosis than is possible without a good understanding of automotive electrical circuits.
The engine timing: I'm guessing the engine revs too high at idle. This can be indicative of an overadjusted throttle cable, a vacuum leak, or incorrect distributor or camshaft timing.
With the host of issues you have with the vehicle, it could use to see a professional technician or replacement.
