Peugeot 307 2003 HDI 2.0 ABS warning Iight illuminated, braking ok, what can i check for?

Check ABS sensors, and pump operation.
It's best to plug in a diagnostic computer for this kind of work.

When you pump the brakes hard, I'm guessing that the ABS system doesn't operate any more. You likely won't notice thins until an emergency situation.

Emergency break stuck- how to realease it?

The emergency brake does not affect the lighting or lights on your plates. This is an entirely different problem going on. On some vehicles, when you start them and put them in reverse the emergency brake pops out automatically. If this doesn't work, you will have to manually unlock the mechanism. As for the lights, the problem may be in your switch.

Airbag light on

You have 2 separate problems. If the airbag light is on, then the control unit needs to be serviced. You will need to read the code from your diagnostic port. After that, replace the component indicated by the code.

The brake light could be low fluid in the reservoir or an indication that the emergency brake cable has stretched and you no longer get enough tension to operate the switch. Check the reservoir first. If that does not fix it, play with the emergency brake to see if you can get the light to go off. If you can, then you need to find the adjuster on the cable and tighten it.

My emergency brake light has come on and stays on along with the little circle that looks like there is water or something on it in the message display...they both come on at the same time when starting...

I'd probably safely raise and support the rear of vehicle, make sure rear wheels turn freely, no braking action unless brakes are applied. You could raise one wheel at a time.
Check the emergency brake release mechanism, the switch and wiring circuit?
My main concern is your not driving down the road with braking action ongoing w/o brakes being applied.
My ex drove 50 miles one time with e-brake not fully released, the brakes were smoking like crazy when she got home. Glad she got home ok. I'm glad it didn't catch fire.
