I'm glad to help. As far as the picture, I can see it a little better now. Lets start with the power supply. Since it has a 10 amp inline fuse, you can run it directly to the battery (through the firewall) You will see rubber plugs where other wires come through. If you would rather, select a fuse (greater than 10 amps) in the fuse box and you can run the power right from there. As far as the ground, you need to make sure that it is a ground to a steel component under the dash or vehicle's body. To check if you have a good ground, just take a test light, connect it to where you want to ground, and then take the other side to a power supply. If it lights, then you have found a ground.
Regarding your question with the actuator, if the system is designed to only operate from a FOB, I don't think you can switch it. The control box is what will actually actuate the solenoids. It isn't set up like a traditional switch (power on / power off).
One last thought, the two wires for the alarm, make sure they are taped off so nothing shorts.
Let me know if you have other questions.
