When you say "hose" it could be to the heater inside the car. If the problem is outside it's not that big a deal to replace ... however if the break is inside the car, depending on the model, part of the dash will need to be removed. If it is the heater hose they are not high pressure. If they look like aluminum you may be referring to the Air Conditioner lines. If one is leaking you will need an AC guy. (unfortunately) specialty tools is required to evacuate the system, replace the line, do a vacuum test again to see that it doesn't leak, then re-charge the system and test.

They are #194 bulbs for the dash instrument panel lighting

That suggests that the problem is in the harness, something in the connector or wiring is causing an open circuit. You will need to have the circuit tested to find the fault. Ford alternators have known connector issues & new aftermarket connectors are readily available at most auto parts stores.

Pay a shop to do a full brake fluid flush and an ABS bleed procedure. Sounds like you have air or crud in the ABS unit

The rust on the exhaust will hardly inhibit a spark of the proper power. The spark should be a blue colour and jump with a sharp noise like a shot.

A graduated spark gap is the best way to measure the spark power. A modern engine ignition system needs to produce around 30,000 volts in order to start and run smoothly - that equates to a gap of around 3/8" or 10mm.

the pcm does not recognise your new key pretty much. they have to be matched by a dealer in most cases.

Sometimes a motor is more sensitive to warm conditions. When the water temperature sensor does not cool off it keeps the engine in a warm run mode which is very lean. This is how lower emissions and better fuel economy are made.

The "cold start sequence" makes a richer fuel mix for starting and running. I have not seen a dividing point where this switches from one mode to the other. IF it is say 180 water temperature degrees and your car stays above 180 degrees turned off after running, then the fuel mix will be very lean until the engine coolant loses heat.

About all you can do is put in a new thermostat of proper temperature or a lower temperature thermostat. You could flush the radiator and back flush the block so that heat loss is more efficient. You could put in a new water temperature sensor. You want to get rid of calcium-fication of the internal surface areas so the components are more like factory new.

Have the fuel pressure tested. The check valve in the pressure regulator may be leaking down.

If the oil pan gasket is split open it will run out of the gap in the gasket.

You need a special tool to hold the ABS hydraulic control valves open during the bleeding procedure. So a well equipped shop needs to do this as the tool is very expensive.

Mechanic at the local Ford dealer told me (he thought) the silver disc thingy is a device to smooth out minor pressure fluctuations in the fuel line.

I think there are two main possibilities - the fuel pressure regulator might be intermittently faulty and sometimes fails to maintain a pressure, effectively sticking wide open so when the engine (and fuel pump) stops the fuel rail could empty back into the tank. The second possibility is a problem inside the tank on the intake side of the fuel pump so fuel swill/fuel level causes the pump to suck air...
