The problem may be the electronic module that controls your daytime running lights. If there is a plug to the module, unplug it and the hi beam lights will work. The Hi Beam light indicator may not work now though until you replace the module.

Yes, inasmuch as they turn off when you shut off the engine and remove the ignition key; and the standard daytime running lights come on when you're driving. You have to switch from DRL to headlights with a switch, though - but in my soob I just leave my headlight switch on all the time anyway.

Yes! Pilots are very careful about their night vision, and you -will- upset them if you put your headlights in their eyes. This is not to say that you should turn all your lights off though. You should have your parking lights on, as well as turning on your four-way blinkers (hazard lights) whenever driving on the airport ramp.

Can you takeoff a runway without runway lights?

Sure! You've got your taxi lights to use as headlights, so you can see the edges of the runway and not run off the sides or end of it. I wouldn't recommend landing on an unlit runway, though.
