there are several companies who make replacements housings and other companies who make HID retrofits.

Note that headlight performance is not dictated by the bulb but by the reflector and optics. you want to avoid changing the light source location as that will reduce the reflector performance.

i bought some aftermarket projectors, and went back to stock because the coverage was much better with stock. This was a few years ago. possible that newer models (costing more) could balance coverage and distance. TYC seemed to make the better replacement housings.

Might send a PM to Auto Design (sponsor here) and see what they can hook you up with?

not sure on your fog lights, pull the bulb and see what you can get for an LED replacement. but note that some newer cars see LED's as an open circuit and trigger the bulb indicator.
