We have loads of CSS files & JavaScript in the wrong places. We want ONE Global CSS file. Minify the CSS & JS especially home page & all other pages

We want CSS files & JavaScript files in the correct order. In the header the CSS files should be placed before the JavaScript Otherwise the processing of the page by the Browser can affect. JavaScript often creates page elements. It is important that the CSS for those elements are already processed

We want to achieve GTMetrix website double "A"s. Dimensions need to be added to images without them

Obtain W3C HTML compliance

Our Objective for the website but especially the Home Page is:
1 A Web page function should first attempt to be designed using only HTML & CSS. If that is not possible then a JavaScript implementation may be used. The JavaScript code should be h& coded using native JavaScript & not copied from a less than optimal source that uses a huge library (e.g. jQuery) to accomplish a rather simple function

2 The designer of our Home Page copied JavaScript from multiple sources. Each time including an entire jQuery library. There are three jQuery libraries specified on this page creating redundant & conflicting JavaScript functions. We need this corrected
