Default Help! 94 electrical issues?

I Have a 94 XLT F150. Truck runs awesome and has never let me down but I'm having some what I believe is electrical issues with my truck. The speedometer doesn't work or any of my other dash gauges except for my fuel gauge. My interior light doesn't work, my dash light works when it wants to and my headlights flicker on and off uncontrollably and driving at night is impossible unless I hold the brights on. The brights still flicker if I don't hold it towards me. Has anyone else had these issues? And if so what was the issue? Any ideas I'll listen to cause electrical is not my cup of tea.

I would start with a new headlight switch. Why? That one part has something to do with each of the things you're having a problem with aside from the gauges not working correctly.

It's what turns the headlights on and off.
It's what turns on a dims the dash lights.
It can turn the dome light on and off.

I'm not usually one to just start off replacing parts but the switch is cheap and easy to replace.

. To change out that switch how difficult is it? I'm not a fan of electrical work and I don't want to get over my head

It's not hard to change and there's no electrical work involved. Just unplugging the connector and plugging it into the new switch.
