I don't know much about halogen bulbs, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are there specific halogen bulbs for low beam and high beam use? Or can I buy any bulb as long as it fits the bulb type?

Please let me know if this will work for my early model (1989) BNR32: I would like to buy some PIAA Arrow Star White halogen bulbs to replace both low beam and high beam bulbs. According to the info above, I need H3c type bulbs for low beam and H3 type bulbs for high beam; which means I need PIAA H-613* for low beams and PIAA H-612* for high beams. Am I right?

*PIAA product codes. Please refer to table from the link I provided.

This is wrong, at least for early and middle R32 GT-R

"Rear Indicator : BA9s either 380 or 382 (single filament)
Tailights : BA9S - halfords have it as a 380 or 382 (double filament bulb)"

BA9 is a 9 mm base. S being single.

The actual bulbs you need are 15 mm base. So the taillights are BAY15D - dual filament, and the backup, reversing lights are BAY15S - single filament.

Dashboard bulbs are incorrect. They are not 501 or w5w bulbs, which are 5W bulbs. Factory service manuals specify 3.4W, and I just pulled (from the factory) Toshiba 158 bulbs from my R32. Using too high wattage won’t blend smoothly with the other factory bulbs.

So for factory look you want 158 bulbs for the main dashboard illumination.
