Maybe something as simple as the dimmer wheel?
n/m You would still have map lights.

Did you check both under the hood and in the dash fuses?

Do you have lighted vanity mirrors in the visors? Are they working?

If not, check fuse #18 (20 amp) in the under-hood PDC (power distribution center)

If it is bad, you lose all of the functions of which you speak
It protects the dash fuse circuit #13

I seem to have power at the dome and overhead but no ground,,,when i pulled the dome the underside of the headliner is soaked,so i obviously have blocked drain tubes and probably,corrosion at the grounds,i'm guessing

The lighting system for the courtesy lamps (come on with door opening) and the system for the adjustable illumination (via the rheostat control on the lighting stalk of the MFS), are both grounded through the switch and the instrument panel

Your observation of wetness suggests grounds are indeed the likely problem
