I have a 1988 xj6 vaden plas and cannot open the doors from the outside so have to leave the drivers door window down enough to reach inside and open it. the front passenger door cannot be opened from either the inside or outside. what's the best way to approach repairing these problems short of trying to find a dealer?

Well i have been thru this problem myself and the only way your ever get it open and to fix the real issue is to remove back seat top and bottom this will give the door panel clearance enough to remove door panel so you can get in side door to open it make surs you fix the pro lem before shutting door again
If the doors will open from the outside, but do not open from the inside - the child safety switches are probably activated. Open the rear doors (from the outside) and slide the small levers next to the doors locks (on the edge of the doors) upwards.
need to remove the interior door panels and check all the linkages. One of them is a brittle plastic linkage that is famous for breaking, and bits get caught up in the travel path of the door handle. I had taht issue, and rebult all mine with aftermarket plastic linkages, and the metal parts I pulled from junkyard cars. No way to fix it without removing the interior door panels, but that is thankfully a pretty easy job.
Inside of your door there are rods that pull the latch open and close and it sounds like your rod from the inner handle to the latch has disconected...take your door panel off and see if that is the problem
yes they are interchangible except the front spoiler is different, but everything else is the same. (the front lower spoiler on the 93 has built in fog lamps)
Pretty easy repair and I could only hope his car is the same color....
