Use a multimeter set to continuity position and touch one probe from your multimeter to each conductor. If you hear a tone from the multimeter then your fuse is good.

How do you know which fuse is for the tail lights you have no diagram and some of your fuses are missing?

You didn't say whether or not your tail lights were working or not , before you found fuses missing. If they were, then the missing fuses may not be missing but may be just empty clips for future add-ons. To find a blown fuse, check for a gap in the silver "wire" or link inside the fuse, that should be visible whether your fuses are the older glass fuses or the "two-legged" type fuses more commonly used today. Depending on location (not having to stand on your head to look at them) , do a visual on all of your fuses, find the bad one, and replace it with one just like it. If you can't easily access your fuse panel, you're stuck with pulling each fuse individually and doing a visual. If your lights don't work after replacing any bad fuses you may find, then check light bulbs - usually accessed from the backside of the tail light , inside your trunk (look for burnt filaments or check it with a meter).
