Small hole on the port side of the dorsal tank is for the fuel pressurization system. Don't know about the intake above it, but it might be related. Big elongated intakes between wings and stabilators are for cooling the afterburner section. The smaller ones above and behind are for cooling nozzle actuators.

 

On vertical stabilizer: triple rods on top are IFF antennas (same as the ones below the nose), fork-thingy protruding aft is RSBN antenna (same as the one below the nose), fairings on both sides are RWR antennas.

Maybe the last 2 circles could be the UHF/VHF antenna and the rear radar warning reciever antenna?

I don't know what controls would activate such a system

 

But if you want to get rid of all your fuel the MiG-21Bis won't stand in your way...

Don't know about the Fishbed, but generally drains in aircraft serve the purpose to remove waste fluids from the systems as a whole. Imagine it as a waste disposal for "spilled" respectively unburned fuel or oil vented out of some valves, so now waste fluids which have to get lost. This happens automatically by air draft and ducts.
