Standard Beetles came out of the factory with a 36 Amp/hour 12 volt battery.
They will happily accept a 45 A/h battery, the modern ones easily fit in the same space, ( I run one, for a bit extra in reserve on cold mornings), but if you only do short trips with all the lights on, it will never get fully charged and you will have to put a trickle charger on it every couple of weeks.
Your headlight side light issue is a wiring fault, probably in the headlamp bowl, so start there, and trace back to fusebox.
