Check the dealer for the cooling line and maybe you can get the preformed one. If not, go to an auto parts store with the old one and match up the length, diameter, and fitting size. You will have to bend it yourself so buy a bending tool to prevent kinking it. If it is too long, you can put a few extra bends in it to take up the slack, or get a cutting and flaring kit if you'd rather shorten it.

For the CEL (Check Engine Light) you will need to plug in a code reader and retrieve the codes to know why the light is on. Autozone does this for free in most locations.

On the under hood engine inspection lamp the switch in the lamp housing is bad. I would just install a switch that you can turn on when you need to use that light. You might even be able to install the switch on the inner side of the hood if the lamp housing is mounted to the hood.
