I was wondering when the "brake light indicator" in the instrument cluster is supposed to light up?

I know it lights up when you turn the ignition on and start her up. It goes out after the buzzers stops buzzing.

Should it light up when the parking brake handle is lifted?

Yep. There is a switch on the parking handle near the base.

OK cool, thats another thing I need to sort out. I am getting there though!

Feels good to have her back on the road.

Yep, was dirty where the springloaded plunger came thru to the rear of the switch housing. Just ran a dremmel with a mini wire wheel on it for a few seconds and thats all it took. Just had to get it good in between the washer that spins and the metal housing that it rests on to make contact. Working perfect. It was not corroded either, atleast not to the eye.
