Taking the fuse out with disconnect it from the other features. also turning the light out. the break has a release button either inside the vehicle under the cover or underneath the car. you will see the cable coming through and just look for where the cable changes. it will be a big difference from outside cable to where it transfers to inside cable.

How do i fix a faulty ignition swicth on a '97 cabrio?

The wiring should not be crossed unless it was in a bad accident that pinched wires or a repair was done to it by someone who did not know what they were doing.
You seem to have several issues, if you are mechanically inclined, I would recommend that you begin by replacing both, ignition switch and the turn signal switch, which also activates your high / low beam. Then proceed diagnosing the park brake problem and finally your ABS issue.

This sounds like how the headlights on this vehicle are designed to operate. They can be manually turned on if in DRL mode. Setting the park brake before turning the ignition on should keep them from lighting, otherwise they are always on. The light sensor switches between lowbeam and daytime running light modes.

Daytime running lights

No you cannot. you could add a switch, to them but thats going to require some soldering and cutting of wires, or you could jerry-rigged the fuse, with a switch. but really you cannot shut off the running lights. before startup.
