You are severely misinformed; automotive power steering is a hydraulic assist system. There is no fuse.
It is possible to drive a Chevy Trailblazer with no power steering. However, it isn't recommended. The steering column could freeze and there could be no way to steer the car.
The power steering fluid is leaking because somewhere in the power steering system there is a leak. It is possible one of the seals on the steering rack has worn out. That would be a good place to start. It could also be coming from a leaky seal on the power steering pump or from one of the lines.
It is possible to drive with a bad power steering pump. However, this is not a good idea because the wheel won't turn as it should.
The oil is bad for your seals in the pump as well as the hoses. If you have oil in your power steering system you should have it flushed as soon as possible.

Secure the power steering pump with the retaining bolts. Attach the power steering hose to the power steering pump. Put the belt on to the power steering pump. Fill the power steering system with fluid.

It's possible but not likely. As far as you are sure that you have put the right kind of fluid, it's not the fluid's fault. It might be joints, power steering pump, pump steering rack, some air or water in the system.

the power steering reservoir is normally located under the alternator so you would have to reach behind and then under it to reach the reservoir.
