If it's a lighted switch, you should have 3 terminal connections on it. One for the "ignition on" wire (from your fuse box). One going to the fog lights to turn them on when you flip the switch and one ground for the switch light to work. If your switch doesn't light, you should only have 2 terminal connections (no ground).
Find an "ignition on" plug on your fuse panel. It is only hot when you turn your ignition to the on position (not crank position). With your keys out, it should not have any power to it. Hook your "hot" wire from fuse panel to switch, take your keys out of the ignition first to be safe. Now hook the other wire from the switch to the "hot" on your fog lights. You will have to find a pass through rubber grommet on your firewall to go through. Use a clothes hanger to help fish it through. Now ground your fog lights to a grounding screw somewhere in the engine bay. There should be a few you can use, possibly one of the bolts that hold the front shroud on. Make sure it's a metal surface and use sandpaper to scrape off paint to get a metal to metal contact. Cover area with petrolium jelly to ward off rust. If your switch is lighted, hook to ground wire on fuse panel. Test with ignition on. If it doesn't come on, check your grounds again.

Look for the a/c pipe that has a blue cap on it, that's the low pressure side where the freon goes.
The pipe with the red cap is the high pressure side, you don't put the freon in that one.
I can't tell you exactly where the connection is, different models are in different places.

You don't have one on there. Pump is turned on and off by the automatic shutdown relay and the pump relay. The crank sensor signal keeps it on. If the asd relay does not get a signal from the computer (from the crank sensor), it turns off the pump relay (and spark).
The pump should run when you first turn the key on. When you start the engine, if the computer gets no signal from the crank sensor it will shut the engine off (no fuel, no spark = off)
If when you first turn the key to on, you can't hear the pump, likely either the pump has failed (check power at the pump harness) or the relay is bad.(swap relay for a known good one and try it).
