Your fuel pump fuse is in the fuse panel on the drivers side of the dash. The fuel pump is in the tank. Chances are after 22 years its the pump. Disconnect the battery and drop the tank. Be prepared and pick up new straps when you pick-up the pump.

Those four things should be on four different fuses.
As for the heater blower, I would unplug the blower motor to see if the short is in the motor. Someone will have to trace the circuits to find the short or shorts that are blowing the fuses. Could be something in the wiring harness that is touching bare metal.
