    It would appear that you are well out of your depth and should not be doing this.
    Electricity can and will will kill you and/or cause fires
    Call in a qualified electrician.

    Sorry OP doesn't make sense.

    From what I can understand the first one is easy, just remove the unwanted switch, connect 2 of the wires together in a block and keep the third one insulated and then fit a blanking plate in place of the switch. The second one is more complicated as you will need to run a 3 core and earth cable between the two switches.
