Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
DSC (dynamic stability control) can affect your brakes and make them apply themselves when not necessary. this system monitors for out of control driving condition and attempts to correct them by using braking. if this system fails, it could constantly feel as if something is wrong and keep the brakes pressed for no reason. first look near the wheel for something that looks like a cogged (gear cutouts) ring very close to the wheel itself and clean the dirt out of it, that might clear the code, if that doesnt work, get the electronics checked out because this problem will cause large amounts of engine, transmission and brake wear and tear.

yes it sounds like a vacuum leak possibly the line going to the brake booster try to start the car open the hood and listen for a hissing noise you may be able to inpoint where the leak is and fix it with a new piece of hose or a fitting

Could be anything. Sometimes the parking brake fault is a sign of low battery voltage as its one of the first items to lose calibration and shows as a fault.
Try a full reset on the operating systems this sometimes clears a persistant bug. Make sure you have your radio code. Disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins to allow all systems to drain. Reconnect and see if the fault reapears. Have you had the fault memory read for problems, this should be the first thing to check.
Hope this helps - good luck
