I am trying to figure out what are the interchangeable parts for a 2001 Dodge Stratus Headlight switch on the column. And how to swap em out??

I was in an accident a few weeks ago. Everyone is okay, the car could be better off. Damage is the front end. Mostly on the front passenger side. I'm a novice and not sure how to inspect to see if the frame is bent... I've looked under the hood and it looks like the radiator hose is pinched, but aside that, nothing under the hood looks to be leaks, no engine light... the radiator looks like it may need to be replaced... I can provide pictures. I'm trying to figure if this is something a novice like myself can fix, replacing parts from salvage yards or finding good deals... are there repair shops that come out to your location to inspect vehicles or no? I'm new to this all...

We bought a 2004 Dodge Stratus SE for my teenager daughter, the battery was dead, so we replaced, as a prevention we change the timming belt, since then the car idles awful and quit running whenever we stop the car, like a stop light or so, we turned back the mechanic, he rechecked the timming belt and his computer said it was the MAP sensor, we changed, checked compresion, wires, spare plugs, everything, it keeps idling, WHAT IT IS WRONG??? Nobody has an idea...all my hometown mechanichs just keep guessing about it, we already spend a lot of money on it!!! HELP PLEASE!!!!!

2004 dodge stratus 2.4L DOHC- after getting the car inspected- it passed legitamately- car ran for about 30 min then started acting like it wanted to die- had to double foot the petals to get it parked- engine light was blinking- had 1 mechanic change the ignition coil he got 2 error codes- (1) was p0250 and the other i believe was p0340- did not change anything- car still is not starting- 2nd mechanic changed cam sensor because cylinders 2 and 3 not firing- nothing changed- now debating on changing crank sensor however after looking on all the forums about this problem it seems this is also not going to work and have not been able to find what comes next- any ideas?
