You know the fuse for the high beams is good ( Cab fuse panel fuse # 16 ) and the pass low beam fuse ( cab fuse panel # 26 ).
Might want to check cab fuse panel fuse #28 ( this is the driver's side low beam ).

If this fuse has power on both sides ( with the low beams on ) next you can pull the headlamps, and check for power at the connectors, but depending when the last bulb change took place, I would say you need need bulbs. ( need at least 1 for the high beam out )
Confirming with a meter at the headlamp would be a good idea, before spending the money.

The bulb connector has 3 pins.
Black wire is ground on both sides
Light Green w/ Black stripe wire is high beams on both sides
Driver Lo = Dark Blue w/ white stripe
Pass Lo = Dark Green w/ Orange stripe.

Dash and tail lights not workjng brake and turn signal on passanger side not working

The dash and tail lights are on two different circuits, and the brake and turn signals are on different circuits, so at least 4 circuits total.
I would start at the headlight switch and check for power on the first two issues.

2000 chevy impala passanger side fuse box and head light switch gets very hot

The basic problem is too much resistance in a circuit.
You have to figure out which one and where the resistance or short is.
You can take the fuses out one at a time or all at once to see which circuit is pulling too much current.
It could be a faulty ground somewhere and the lights are grounding thru the wrong circuit. Or something shorted together and pulling current thru the wrong circuit. Like the headlights running off the dash light circuit.
You may need a book with wiring diagrams to know what to check.

Change right headlight

Answer I have a 96 Jeep...You just unplug the wire to the back of the headlight. Grab the headlight and pull. There are three snaps two on the bottom and one on the top. I used a little grease on the new snaps. Clean socket and push head light back into place making sure all three snap into place. It took me 15 minutes to complete the drivers side. You have to take the Battery out to get the other wire off the head light on the passanger side. I did not have to use any wrenches to complete this job

I have a 2003 hyundai tibron.having head light problems

difficult one this ??do you mean the indicator front light drivers side is dim?? Now as for it not starting with headlights switch in the on position and the headlights not working then i can only assume that the wires in the multiplug connector behind the steering column are playing up ,either shorting across or the the wire insulation has fused together.Without motor in front of me its very difficult to say whats wrong,this is the sort of job for a dealer only type mechanic who only works on one make of vehicle.Because they will have come across this before no doubt unlike a bodgy old cowboy like myself who will take on anything with an engine.
