Here's the factory headlamp switch you need if you plan on going that route. It's a simple plug and play item.

Is the relay that connected to the 611T via the yellow wire essential? Could I just connect that yellow wire directly to the fog lights?

No you could not mike because of a few reasons. One would be the amps that the lights draw. The 611T module may not be able to handle that much load. Secondly most likely the 611T module would be mounted in the interior of the car and the relay would be under the hood to get power directly from a high power (fused) source under the hood. What is not included in that diagram is wire size but if it were you would see the yellow wire does not have to be all that big (22-20 gauge) to trip the relay but the wires going to the power feed of the relay and down to the lights should be a good size to handle the amps. 14 to 16 gauge would be good. And of course I am not sure in the yellow wire is fused. where as the feed to the relay should be fused in case of a short in the fog light harness (very possible in a front end crash)

One thing not mentioned in the diagram is the terminal yo wold need to insert in the headlight plug. I am sure BBengeneer sourced those but not sure if they ever let anyone know what they were?
