How does the headlight circuit work?

Hey guys so as some of you may have read back in the day i have a problem with my headlights that i have been.

Any ways my current task so that i dont die of lack of light is to fix my headlights.

So far these are the symptoms.
1. headlights dont turn on with the switch when car is off. only corners and other parking lights.
2. when headlights are supposed to be on and i push the stalkl, normally this would make the highbeams turn on. the highbeams do not turn on.
3.the fog lights dont work anymore. (on aspec fog lights work when headlights r turned on and foglight button is pushed in)

So basically the only headlights i have are daytime running lights (which i believe i read are lower then low beams because of reduced voltage. unless i hold the stalk in the "flash" position.)

So what i am trying to figure out is if i can fix it as the new lights/wiper controls wont be here till end of dec.

Can any one give me an explaination of the headlight circuit... (im lost in the haynes diagram)
Basically i would like to know what the power starting at the battery goes through before the power arrives at the headlight. so which switches (if possible how do the y work) what is needed to trigger, etc. basically a description of the ciurcuit and the switches.

Much appreciation to help given. cuz i really need to have proper lights.

Thanks guys
