What kind of lighting is this in my headlight?! And problems..

I know I can always count on the community here to give me some good answers. My driver side headlight seems to be intermittently going out now a days. I looked at one of the female connectors connecting to the bulb -- the wire seems frayed so I'm guessing thats the cause of that? Also, I ordered khoalty angel eyes but I'm not thinking whether I should even put them in because I don't know if it looks classy (bordering on ricey?). Also, when I tried to put them in, I noticed the angel eyes I do have are already built into the light so they light up behind the khoalty ones which doesn' t look good (I bought this second hand so I have no idea what kind of angel eyes these are, but it seems to be built in). Also, some of the led angel eyes I have are kind of fused. Also, the khoalty angel eyes are hitting the bezel and aren't an ideal fit (some of the bezel ultimately covers up a portion of the angel eye). THUS, I'm thinking of returning the khoalty angel eyes, which leads me to..
  • What kind of headlight is this? (xenon, bi xenon, projection, etc)

    Am I right in assuming putting any new female connector will work fine to fix the light issue? The autozone rep mentioned that these might be HID lights thus requiring special wires/connectors.

    What kind of angel eyes are those currently in there? It appears to be little bulbs, some of which are out. I'm thinking I can just replace the bulbs? Or maybe its the wiring? I don't know! Is it easy to open up the light to replace the bulbs? You can see in the pictures the little lights circulating around the headlight, 2 of them are out. Its like that on both sides.
