This is the best pic I found on A.net, but like I said before the No Smoking and Fasten Seatbelt switches are nothing more the a standard two pole toggle switch just like you would see at Radio Shack. Every single Flight Sim I have seen does them Very well. The switches are on the bottom row of the overhead panel. Exterior are almost always on the left side ( landing lights are T shaped), interior lights are on the right.

The AUTO function is probably different on every aircraft but the basics are, if I remember correctly, to do with flap position and gear position. So if you have the gear down the fasten seatbelts lights will be on or if the flaps are not up the F/S lights will also be on. This means the lights will be on from first flap deployment on approach until the flaps are fully up after the next departure.
The No Smoking signs are permanently illuminated on our fleet whether the switch is in the OFF, AUTO or ON position.
