Hi does any body no if I install the different switch that allows you to dim your interior lighting at night. Will it work. I have the fiesta mk7 zetec and it doesn't let you dim the lights . I drive at night every night and it's far to bright all the time.

A dimmer switch adds a resistor into the interior lighting circuits so should work fine for you.
I did it to my Focus with no problems.

How do I go about finding one of these as I've had a quick look on eBay and can't find one.

As long as you can get a switch unit with a dimmer integrated into it you just swap them over.
A Fiesta owner will best be able to advise on the method.
