does anyone know how to take apart the headlight assembly of an E36 without breaking it and how to seal it after you put it back together so it doesn't fog up?

If its the plastic US spec light, it can't be taken apart, only the euro spec glass lens lights can be dissasembled.

It's VERY difficult, and you risk damaging the whole headlight.
Since your car is a show-car, you should just invest in euro ellipsoids, then it's very easy.
