Can you replace a 3-way light switch with a standard switch and cap off the wires or can you use the 3-way switch and make it into a standard switch?
It can be done but it requires knowledge about how a 3way is wired to convert it to a regular switch. It would involve testing live wires to determine where power starts at. You can't just replace one switch.

What 6 things do you need to make a torch?
to make a torch you need batteries (obviously), a switch (you can buy a standard switch or make a pressure switch out of foil and cardboard), a light bulb, wires (3 if you are using any kind of switch) and a housing (something to hold the batteries, wires, light bulb etc. together). I would also recommend using a light bulb holder and wires with alligator clips (if you dont have solder) as these make the construction more sturdy. they may increase bulk but they are worth it especially as it is easy to replace the bulb and there is no solder needed therefore nothing has to be broken to replace anything.

How do you change backup light switch on a BMW?
Backup light switches are different between automatic and manual transmission bmws. If you have the automatic the switch is under the shifter. Disconnect the battery and remove the shifter boot. Unplug the switch wires and replace the switch and reconnect the wires and battery. If you have a manual transmission the switch is on the passenger side of the transmission above the Allen type filler plug. Disconnect the battery, unplug the wires and unscrew the switch with a 19mm wrench. Screw in the new one an torque it down then reconnect the wires and the battery.

How do you wire a basic off switch to a light?
Light switch connection is usually straight forward. Find your incoming hot wires, black and white. With the switch in the off (down) position and the power disconnected , connect the black wire to the top screw of the switch. Find the load wires and connect the black to the bottom screw of the switch. Connect the two remaining white wires together with a wire nut and push them to the back of the switch box. Install the switch into the wall box, replace switch plate cover. Turn the breaker (power) back on. Flip the switch to the up position and the light should come on.

What happens when you connect black and black wires together when white and white are already together and not being used?
This sounds like a typical light switch connection that turns on an overhead light fixture. There are two pairs of wires in from the supply voltage and two pairs of wires out to the light fixture. The two white wires are connected together in the back of the box. These are the neutrals from the supply to the light fixture. The two black wires are the ones that get attached to the switch. Incoming "hot" to the top terminal of the switch and the outgoing black to the bottom terminal of the switch. If you just touch the two wires together as you explain in your question then the light fixture should come on.
How do you wire a new light with an on off switch using wires coming from an outlet?
Continue black, white and bare wires from outlet to switch box. Run light black, white and bare wires from light to switch box. Connect wire from light to one attachment on switch and black from outlet onto other switch attachment. Connect white wires together with a wirenut. Connect bare wires together with a wirenut and include a third piece of bare wire to this same wirenut. Connect the other end of this third bare wire to green screw on switch. Make sure all wires are 14 AWG if you have a 15A circuit and 12 AWG if a 20A circuit.

How do you wire a fixture that had two hot and two neutral wires?
To install a new fixture to replace the one that was removed reconnect the two hot wires together and then reconnect the two neutral wires together. Place the two wires from the new fixture to the corresponding wire colours that you just spliced together. This wiring should be down stream from the light switch. When the switch is turned on the new fixture should light. If this is not the scenario of your question then more information needs to be given.
