What are a few of the major Dos and Don't to be aware of at a motions hearing...

I'm charged with simple assualt, Disorderly conduct,and henderig a law enforcement officer (obstruction) all misder....

Do be polite to the people in the courtroom. Speak slowly so the court reporter can take down what you say.

Do not speak to the opposing lawyer, speak only to the Judge.

Dress respectfully. Do not interrupt when anyone is speaking, it drives the court reporter nuts. Do not show up late for court.

Argue that any priors are irrelevant to the current charges and have no probative value and it would be highly prejudicial for information about any priors to come in to evidence in the current case.

Argue you are entitled to the video footage because it could show that you are innocent, or it could lead to the discovery of relevant evidence or witnesses.

Argue that getting the previous incident reports could lead to the discovery of relevant evidence. Maybe the previous reports contain evidence that you are being selectivewly prosecuted.

Of course as you anticipated I urge you to ask the court to appoint an attorney to assist you with your defense.

The above is just my own opinion, but I hope this is helpful.
