Traction control and stability control are different but use the same controller.
If you just turn off traction control you can get a second or 2 more of wheel spin but stability control will then kick in.
You need to turn off both, it should be in the Owners Manual, you need to hold the button in, light will come on and then go off, keep holding it until light comes on again.
Now both should be off.
But when you get above around 25-30mph Stability control will come back on, outside of pulling a fuse no way around that.
Usually there is an ON light on the cruise on off button, not sure on 2012, but yes the dash board light will only come on when cruise control is actually operating the throttle.
There were some computer changes in 2011/12, google: 2012 ford disable seat belt minder
I think newer models had to be disable by seat, so you could just disable passenger seat chime
Window issue reads like track is miss adjusted, but on both doors would be a fluke, unless it was never adjusted at factory.
You can try some soap on the tracks, make glass slide smoother
