b) and e) are simple enough from a 12 volt supply - connect direct from the battery via appropriate fuses.
c) can be taken care of by https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hxt-ubec-5-6v-output-5-5-23v-input.html?___store=en_us
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Airplane-Ubec-Aebc617-4-5a-Input/dp/B01K9GHWHI  will do the job for d)
I doubt that anybody will do a single unit that has everything wanted in one go as it will be a very specific, restricted market.

No doubt Maplin have a box that will hold it, but you will have to be quick off the mark to catch them before they shut up shop, or they do what they have traditionally done, which is to spot a useful line and either hide it or discontinue it.

Give component shop a call and see if they can knock something up for you, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I use these to drive 6V bow thruster and 6V monster servo from 12V SLA.

Selectable 5V/5.5V/6V/7V/9V and you can pull 20A through them. You would need 1 each for your 6V and 9V requirement.
