Sounds like your alternator is going bad. The extra juiced used when breaking robs power from the other lights. Pulsing when idling sounds like the voltage regulator which is built into the alternator. Have it replaced.

In the back should be tail lights which always come on when the headlights or parking lights are on, and stoplights which come on whenever the brakes are pressed. The stoplights should be brighter than the tail lights, but they should be separate.

The brake lights should not come one until you step on the brakes. The tail lights should come on when the headlights are on. If they're weak, maybe there's dirt in/on the lenses or maybe the bulb is old and clouded. Change the bulbs and see if that improves things.
