Start by clicking on the camera icon in the top right hand corner of the box you post in Rach. That's where you can upload photos. They have to be under about 2.5 MB just now - anything bigger won't load so you may have to resize.
Buddleias can be damaged by the wind as they get top heavy, so you can take some of the branches back by a third or so. That helps a lot. I've just done mine.
Rosemary is evergreen so only needs a trim as and when needed. They tend to get a bit rough after a few years anyway, but you can take cuttings or sow from seed to get new plants. Things like foxgloves and lupins can be cut back when all the stems have died back, although many people leave them over winter to provide a place for insects to shelter or hibernate. Sage doesn't survive here in the wet, but you would normally just leave it and tidy in spring if it's too big. Chopping back now may leave it vulnerable to frost, but it would depend on where you are and how cold it gets etc.
Sorry - don't grow roses or fuchsias, but someone else will be able to advise on those. You'll get advice on your other shrubs once they've been identified
