You have discovered some of the main pitfalls in buying a model which has only ever been designed for the Japanese domestic market.
You won't find an English manual, end of. It was never intended for English speaking markets so Toyota never went to the time and expense of producing the manual you ask for. Likewise any onboard graphics and operating assistance screens will not usually have alternative language choices.
It's also very unlikely that the video will ever work in anything other than the Japanese version of NTSC. It either has a universal decoder chip, and may offer (in Japanese) to reset the region coding for you, or it won't.
About the only thing you might get working (I presume you're in Europe) is the FM radio, but as Japan uses a different set of frequencies to Europe you'll need to fit a frequency expander to the radio (commonly available online or at car audio shops), but the frequencies shown on the display will remain incorrect.
One fix is to find a RHD 2007 Corolla at a scrapyard (not exactly common as the Corolla hasn't been supplied to Europe since before 2007) and to transplant the entire entertainment system across, but it will likely be of a far lower specification to your model. As you may have to obtain this from Australia/NZ it won't be cheap, and you won't know what you're getting until it arrives.
Your best fix is to learn Japanese!
