Without testing the electrical circuit's we'd only be guessing . Looking at wiring diagrams to see if the instrument cluster & fog lamps share a common ground or power supply would be a good first step.

You have not indicated whether you live in the "rust belt" of the northern United States, or in the south.
Up north, salt damage can cause all this, because it can get into the harness sockets and short out all things electric.
Another consideration.
When your car was made, at various times in the assembly, wire harnesses were plugged in to one another.
If you car was ever in a wreck, the connections could loosen, causing this.
And, last but no least, sometimes people have to add a bunch of extra "ground wires" to their car, because some get unhooked by various persons working on the car, and do not get reconnected. Sometimes these are in areas of the car you cannot see, they are hidden.
God bless your efforts.

Use a voltmeter to check the DC voltage to the maf by probing the back of the connector on the pink and black wires. Have someone start the car while you watch the meter. It should show the alternator voltage of 13.5-14.5 vdc, and it should stay constant. Watch it until the engine dies. If the car passes this test, switch from the pink wire to the yellow wire and do the same thing. The voltage on the yellow wire will be lower, but it should not change much until the engine dies.
If the car fails either of these tests, there is some problem with the wiring.
If the car passes these tests, the circuit is probably ok.
That means something is probably blocking airflow. Remove the air filter and look/feel upstream. Check the inlet duct on the front of the car for blockage. Maybe a plastic bag got stuck in there...

if the starter motor click but does not engage, the engine will not turn over failing solenoid in the starter motor is usually the fault.

You must hook up a scanner that can read the ABS system to the diagnostic connector under the dash and see what faults codes are present in memory.

Try changing the fuel filter.the fuel pump may be going bad also. Is the check engine light on?

one thing you can try is to get one of those magnetic pick up tools at a parts store.......prefferably one with a large magnet...and put a cloth around the end of it so you dont scratch the plastic on you gauges and try to pull it back to where it belongs,i have done this a few times with good results,hope this helps

the air feels hot ( compressed) because the ac compressor is not working
you say that occasionally it kicks in and then the air is cold
that could be either a climate control module , thermostat compressor relay problem but which ever way you look at it it will cost cash
the best way is to have the problem properly diagnosed by an accredited ac specialist shop and get a quote and then decide on the fix

could be a good candidate for the overheating problem
it is probably the oil line that goes to the oil cooler in the radiator and if it doesn't have sufficient flow then the oil in the transmission gets progressively hotter
before replacing it consider this
transmission oil coolers that are in the radiator tank keep the oil at coolant temps which is around 95 C
if you spend a bit of cash and fit an air to air transmission cooler , it brings the operating temp of the oil down to 1/2 ambient temp
besides the fact that your are now removing an added heat source from the coolant of the engine the results are --cooler running engine and cooler running transmission
worth talking to an accredited transmission specialist shop

Try the cheapest Fixes first 1) change the air filter. 2) change the fuel filter. Add 1 can of B&G44K to a full tank of 91 octane fuel. This additive is the best on the market and only available through dealerships(Do not substitute). It will condition the fuel pump and injectors. Try this first, Then redo the ODBII test. Erase all stored faults after reading. Put a dab of RTV on the bare wires at the crank sensor to insulate wires.
