If the tri-light needs a new lamp holder try any reputable lighting house store. These types of retailers have all of the parts that you need to repair any lamp configurations. The new switch will have a rotary switch built into it just like the lamp had when it was new. There are only two wires to connect to it. Don't disconnect the old one until you have the new one and just put the wires on the same terminals as the they are wires on the old switch.

What is the difference if a switch is before or after a bulb in a circuit?

It is a safety concern. With the switch before the bulb, the bulb is completely isolated from the potential source when the switch is turned off. With the switch behind the bulb, even if the switch is turned off, the potential source is still at the bulb. If any of these lamp holder parts touch the ground when removing the bulb the circuit will short out and trip the breaker. If you are grounded and touch any of the lamp holder parts you will get a nasty shock.
