The comment on the photo says that the cockpit has been stripped down, so I wouldnt be surprised if thats the reason for the missing cover.

For this and the taxiing question - for most modern aircraft, it doesnt matter which side the PIC sits on to fly the aircraft, some prefer it on one side and some on the other.

The Yellow lever MIGHT be an aileron or elevator disconnect handle, as the EMB145 has...look at the two red levers..

The center instrument seems to be a GPS/FMS instrument for long and short range navigation...a less sophisticated version on the F/Os MFD screen...
