The brake light switch is under the dash right above the brake pedal stalk, its a somewhat common replacement item. The lack of brake power assist problem your having needs to be fixed before you drive the car anywhere. It may be a combination of problems such as bad brake booster/vacuum leak, air in lines, ruptured caliper seal, broken brake line.
I am not a guru on diesels but your starting problem may be related to the glow plugs. My advice is get the brakes in working order first before someone gets hurt. B
