if it's just gonna be on/off, or maybe 12v/off/7v, or 12v/off/5v kind of switching, then you could use small slide switches and position them vertically, hoping you could fit like 10 on a 5.25" bay plate.  As for the wiring, you can refer to fanbus.com.

Not sure about the switches, X2's idea sounds good. As for the led's maybe you could use bi or tri-colored ones to eleminate the need for so many. That might save you a little room.

Why so many switches?
Bi colour leds are the best choice if you're gonna switch from 5v/12v or 7v/12v since you'll need less room for the leds, less soldering, less resistors, and you won't have a big wire mess.

The reason there are so many switches is cause i have 9 fans, plus 4 ccfl's and neon wire. But I want it to be a 7v/off/12v cause my 80s need at least 6v.

m3x1c4nm0nk3y: then you need DPDT switches.
If I were you I would use bicolour leds.

Here you have a schematic
