I have put the original wheel size in and compared it to a typical 17" wheel with et40 results below

Will they clear the brembo calipers, that is the only thing at the min stopping me finding a set of wheels,

Evo v offset is 45 so that makes the rim closer to the suspension leg

Yes can be a minefield getting wheels that fit in all areas, hence sticking with oem is easiest option, Evo5 or 6 oem wheels with slightly narrower tyre and you should be good, maybe slight arch roll on rear.

Offest is generally mm yes and smaller the +et the further wheel sticks out the arch, so a Et+38 will will put outer edge of rim 7mm further out of arch than Et+45, this doesn't tell you how much clearance spokes have from caliper though and that is difficult bit on Evos with brembos.

Bought a headlight wiring loom this week to hopefully fix the no lights including no dash lights situation, still got headlights and reverse light but nothing else? Someone said check radio wiring?

Bought headlights as well with indicators but I really want orange indicators, the headlights were yellowed and hazy

I think it's a plastic-type coating on the lens thats degraded and gone manky.

The lights are glass so you could probably scrape off the coating and polish up the glass.

Absolutely, I have polybushes on the front and rear arms and diff mounts on the evo 6
It is mainly for track use these days I would not want to use it everyday that's for sure mainly due to the roads

I have Railliart or standard on my 8 and for a road car its excellent just the right balance between comfort and stiffness

The car will be back in a couple of weeks time, going over Saturday to collect my old wheels as I got a new set for it,

Not sure how stiff the whiteline full bush kit is? Will I regret putting them on? I want to use this as a daily as well, shall I swap them for the Ross sport ralliart kit before he puts them on?

I would if it was my car. If you were doing a track/competition build then it'd be different, but for mostly road use the Ralliart is going to be better to live with.
