First off, I've never looked at a single range push button 4wd closely.
Is the push button switch electric, and if so what kind of stuff "could" I use that switch on the stick?

Say fog lights?

Torxx, yes it is an electrical switch. SPDT
(has contacts on both sides - pushed down one set closes,
when released (up position) another set is closed.)
It could be used for fog lights, ejection seats, whatever.

The current rating for the switch is probably pretty low
as it only controls the vacuum solenoids in a 4wd car.
It would be excellent for
controling the relay for your driving/fog lights.
The wire to it can be found under the gear shift console.
I can give you the wiring diagram / wire colors if you need.
Hope this helps

I forgot to mention that I have a DR 5 speed.

I'd love the wiring diagram.
