Idea Replacing all lights in 2002 L200 with LEDs, help needed.

I'm looking to replace any lights in my 2002 L200 with LEDs that I possibly can. I've already done my brakes and reverse lights, and they're all working great. My next step will likely be the dome lights (although there's actually a video detailing that, so I'll be able to do that myself. Any color suggestions, though?)
After that, I'll be looking to do the climate control module lights, as many of them have burnt out anyway.
After that, I want to do the turn signals. I've read that installing LEDs can cause hyperblinking, as the car thinks that the light is burnt out due to the smaller amount of power being used. Would I need to get a resistor for this, or would it work well without one?
I'm also looking to replace my headlights, but I can't choose between Xenon and LED. Opinions/pros & cons for each?
I'd also like to replace the lights in my window control buttons, but I'm not sure if the LEDs already installed in those are soldered to the board or not. I'd rather put in something that'll match the other bulbs I'm installing.
Last but not least, I'll be replacing the lights in my dashboard. I've seen videos of how to take it out, but I'm not sure what LEDs I would need.

If anyone knows the types of bulb that I need for any of these, I would love to know. I'm quite the novice at cars, but I build computers, so this would be a nice transition into getting to know how to work on vehicles, as this is fairly similar.
(Sorry for the long post; I wanted to put as much detail as possible, and the L-series doesn't seem to be all that popular online, as I could barely find any L-series videos on YouTube.)
Thanks for any much-needed help!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Yep, I've been there. I'm just not sure which ones I need, and where I would be putting that particular bulb. Would you happen to know the bulb types that I need, and what they go to? Thanks for the quick reply, by the way.

Check with your local parts store and they can tell you want bulbs they are and you can then use the site to order the right one. Otherwise get those bulb numbers from the dealer and you can be sure which one they are.
