3.Switching on AC ot climate control is the best and easier method of removing fog formation.

No, Power steering change from non-power steering is not possible.

It will require tremendous work with opening of components under bonnet and the result is not guaranteed. I doubt if any authorised service center will even agree to undertake this job, non authorised are risky and you may end up messing your car. Advice: Dont do with unauthorised dealers.

Shampoo droplets in water is good to clean the front windshield.

In winters, switch ON AC OR heater. Else you may also try opening windows for few moments when the visibility goes quite low and close the windows when it is back to normal.

Normal steering can be easily changed to a power steering. Before power steering became nearly a standard feature in cars there were many companies that did the conversion. Cost then was high but has considerably reduced since.
Clean water is normally sufficient however shampoo (specially meant for the windshield) helps get rid of stubborn particles easier.
Misting on the windshield forms when the temperature inside the car (due to breathing mainly) goes higher then the outside temperature. Condensation therefore takes place on the inside of the windshield. AC (not the heater, as it will increase the condensation on the windscreen)is the fastest and easiest way to prevent windshield misting as it cools the cabin and reduces humidity. If your car is not equipped with the same keep the windows open a little. The cool air coming in from outside will neutralize the cabin temperature and will have the same effect.

A lot of people are still confused with humidity issues that cause fogging. It is when the interior is dry that you won't have fogging, and has nothing to do with the AC or heater. In order to not allow condensation, you need to keep the moisture in the car at a higher temperature OR lower relative humidity to the outside air. Depending on the humidity of the air, you may have to use either A/C or the heater, but most importantly, make sure the vents that blow air onto the inside of the windshield are clean and allow a full blast.
