Concerning the courtesy lights, what do your units actually look like?

Different courtesy light units will have different bulb fitments

They will be one of three bulbs(and sometimes a mix of)

Either-

T10 (also known as W5W or 501)

Festoon (38mm or 40mm, doesn't matter which as the contacts inside the light can be bent to accomodate them)-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-X-239-FESTOON-12V-5W-CAR-AUTO-BULB-BULBS-38MM-INTERIOR-LIGHT-NUMBER-PLATE-/270984893772?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3f17f5554c

H6W, (also known as 433 or BAX9S)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370700058442?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

It's best to pop open the light and compare the bulbs to be totally sure.

The standard light my car was built with took a festoon, the maplight one i replaced it with took a festoon and two H6W and the ambient one i have now takes three T10, so as you can see there are various combinations and types used therefore best to look.

Any colour led is legal as long as it's not flashing.

What do you have in your footwells?

A decent 5SMD wedge would do the job
