The white lever is the speed brake control, to the left of it (and the identical unit to the right of the throttles) is a CCD - Cursor Control Device. It is a touch pad that navigates the multi function displays (the second and fourth panels). In the picture you posted we can see the cursor is in the lower right corner in both multi function displays (blue outline).

What?! All this time I was thinking the white handle was the automatic martini dispenser and the flat plate was a hot plate for warming the coffee. Oh well.

That would be for the America West variation.

Those appear to be the engine start/stop switches which are on the overhead of the ERJ-145 family.

The captain side MFD looks like the electrical system.

The first officer side looks like the equivalent of the takeoff data page of the ERj 145 which includes the picture of the airplane with red/green marks for all the doors and hatches saying whether they are open or closed. Probably the brake temps, oil quantities, bleed temps, hyd quantities, etc.
