Need Advice - Code Read

I just a new member, after lot of search I came to this site, seeking help. My story goes ,I got BMW E46 330CI Convertible, Model 2001. I start getting transmission error and car gets stalled with a gauge sign on the speed cluster. My mechanic told me to replace the DME ECU as its creating issue. We replaced the DME ECU, EWS , Door locks and key since then remote unlock stop working and engine light turned on. I got my car scan and got this mention below report.

Code 18 Signal, Camshaft Sensor Exhaust
Code 11 Signal, Sensor, Radiator Outlet Coolant Temperature
Code 62 Activation, Solenoid Valve, Secondary Air
Code 140 Output-Stage Fault DMTL Pump
Code 126 Output-Stage Fault diagnose module, tank leak, diagnosis valve
Code 79 Activation, OX Sensor heater behind Cat Conv bank 1
Code 61 Activation, OX Sensor heater behind Cat Conv bank 2
Code 2 Activation, Ignition Cylinder 4
Code 29 Activation, Ignition Cylinder 1
Code 29 Activation, Ignition Cylinder 5
Code 210 Error Ignition Correct Measurement at more than 2 Cylinders
Code 30 Activation, Ignition Cylinder 3

These are the codes I hope I wrote it right, since then car is on rough idle, misfire a lot,hard on acceleration and black carbon can be seen on side of the rare bumper.
Kindly suggest me what should I do as the car is more than 10 years old and does not cover under any warranty and I am totally noob before my mechanic rip me off, if you all can suggest what step should I take, either I get my old DME repaired or replace few parts.
