Don't Know Much But Want To Learn

I'm new to this forum and I confess, I don't know much about auto repairs, maintenance and parts. Having said this, I'm a pretty fast learner once pointed in the right direction.

I own a 1990 300e with over 300k miles. I am the original owner and as you can imagine, I've been extremely happy with this vehicle. So much so, that when I was debating getting a transmission versus buying a new vehicle, I opted for the former since this car is, in my mind a classic.

Now I'm interested in focusing on the interior and general cosmetics. I have several questions that hopefully this forum can send me in the right direction:

1. The door panels requuires replacement. Can these be ordered and self installed? What's a "reasonable" price for these.
2. The left "headlight" cover is cracked. I think this covers the fog light. Where can this be ordered or can this be repaired.
3. The passenger seat headrest does not operate. I checked fuses but they are all good. Where does one start to identify the problem.
4. The seat "memory" control on the drivers side seems to be out of whack...

Well I think that's enought for now
