I'm not sure which one you are talking about, if I remember correctly there are 2 on the firewall. One is a 16 guage wire which protects all red 12 guage wiring. The other is a 20 guage wire that protects the generator warning light and the field circuitry on the alternator. It will be protecting a 16 guage wire.

At a certain point in a truck/car's life, the gas that is in the shocks, or the fluid, starts to degrade, or seep away, at which point it is horrendously ineffective at cushioning out those potholes before they reach your rump. It sounds like shock replacement time.

Yes it does have a switching valve.

Slow is the same speed as 'mist'. Mist is when you twist the control arm backwards to induce a single swipe. If you hold it, you will run the wipers in low speed. Fast is faster than that. Probably by 30% or more.

Turn the wipers on high speed. Wiggle the connector at the wiper motor. If the wipers run sporadically as you wiggle the connector, you either have a bad connector or a bad circuit board on the wiper motor.

Check the fuseable links .. they are a rubbery type wire usually on the back of the alternator or starter motor usually in a group with 3 to 6 of them ..They usually have a black or white piece of plastic where the fuse link attaches to the actual wire .. These wires aka fuseable links usually corrode or rot out at the plastic piece under the insulation you hardly see the break in the wire...good luck..by the way.. these links act as a slow blow fuse in the system...

The only fuse for the headlights is in the headlight/headlamp switch which is a circuit breaker which should automatically reset itself when in off position.
