AF and shutter speed have nothing to do with white balance. Please be more specific as to what problems you are having.

AF doesn't work very well in low light situations although in the shot you posted you should be able to find enough contrast around the light areas to allow AF to work. If not use manual focusing.

In low light shutter speed will be very slow unless you up the ISO setting, in which case you will get more noise in the dark areas.

For white balance you can either set it to one of the Nikon presets or set it manually. To set it manually select pre as the white balance and point the camera at a white card under the lighting that you are using. Press the shutter and if there is enough light you'll get good displayed in the top LCD. If there is not enough light this will not work.
