At this age, there are many things that start to break on the MX5 - the issues you've listed are common. You also need to check fan and timing belts, brake discs for wear, brake calipers for sticking, the clutch and transmission engaged switches, the idle air control valve, the positive crankcase ventilation valve, the air intake in general for build-up of grime and cracking etc, the coolant temperature thermistor, the crank angle sensor, the spark plugs and wires....

The list goes on and on!
Is just a symptom of age I'm afraid.

Passenger side headlamp wont light up

I'm assuming globe means bulb. I have replaced many bulbs that look fine, and that turns out to be the problem. But to stop you from chasing down a problem that isn't there, test the connector that attaches to the bulb. Should be power there with the head lights on. There should be a fuse, and a relay. The fuse is under the dash or on the side of the dash near the door hinges, I'm just not sure if this car would have seperate fuses for L headlight and R headlight. But you should check power first at the connector.

Improvement done by sickofjunk
There are radiator sealants available at many auto parts stores. I personally have never been able to get them to work though another good way to seal a leak if it is on the aluminum part of the radiator is to soder it with silver soder. And no i don't think pepper will stop a radiator leak.
