Auto focus failure

My experience with lenses is that they either work or they don't. If it does not work "as you usually used it", then there is a problem inside the lens and not something the average photographer can repair. Lenses are quite fragile, a slight knock on one occasion can damage the inner bits which are very intricate and more so with motorised lenses. I have experienced a battery problem error message through a damaged lens housing and the battery also subsequently got damaged through short circuit inside the lens mechanism. Send it for a check-up and repairs!

Does my Sigma 28-105 mm Aspherical for film camera work on my Canon 5D Mark III?

If the Sigma lens mount is a Canon FD fitting then you can get an adapter FD to EF that will allow you to use the old lens in manual mode. If your camera isn't designed to take EF-s lenses then they will not fit on the camera. My EF-s lenses will not fit on my 6D.

I have a Canon Zoom EF-S 18-55mm lens and I'm not sure if it got damaged when I accidentally dipped my camera into the ocean. I haven't turned the camera one, but when i look through the lens...

Sorry, but salt water immersion is effectively just as destructive to your camera and lens as if they had been crushed or burnt. If the body and lens were immersed in seawater then they are complete write-offs as they will be completely beyond economic repair.

Water inside the lens (Canon EF-S 17-85mm F4.5-f5.6 lens)

if it is only fogged you can blow hot air on the lens while fully zoomed in and after the water has evaporated, zoom out to compress the moist air out. do this several times.

Vivitar series 1,70-210mm tele photo.when camera is tilted,lense will move in or out.drives me nuts

It's called "zoom creep" and not all that uncommon. You can try sliding a sheet of paper or a thin film under the ring to tighten it up, or use tape to hold it in place once you've got what you wanted. I would NOT squirt any liquids inside to unlubricate it.

My camera lense will not focus automatically or manually.

There is no battery in the lens.  The lens receives power from the camera. Whether or not the lens is getting power, though, you should be able to focus manually.
When you say you can't focus manually, do you mean that you can't turn the focusing ring on the lens, or that when you turn the ring the image does not come into focus?
If you decide the lens needs to be repaired, I recommend sending it to Canon.  You can go to their website ( if you're in the US), click on support, and follow the links.

I am looking at a 400/640mm preset lens,

Pre-set depending on the model, can be fixed aperture, and or fixed focal length. You have to read the spec sheet to know, or call the dealer.

I have a fixed 500 mm / F8 mirror lens. It is refered to as a fixed lens, because nothing is adjustable. I have aperture and filter drop-ins to do the equivalent of some adjustments.
