Martin E, yes we can help you determining what parts are actually missing, if you can show us where they are missing from. Like Krayzee said, post images of the area with your question. Use this guide to add images. Since you previously used "crazy glue" for your repair, consider the answer by Jtag and eman05, how are you going to attach the replacements? You will need to get someone with the right skills and tools to solder those for you.

If capacitors are on logic board you are pretty much S.O.L. Even if we're able to identify them how would you solder them back on.

If you have the battery connector installed correctly the iPhone will start and charge, but with the capacitors missing your iPhone will reboot every 3 mins and it will give you a bad reading on the battery percentage. You can jump the leads and it will work fine. Also it is best to solder on a new battery connector, never use glue.
