It would be most common just to wire a switch to ground the relay trigger (independant of ecu), however if you want to do it in the ecu, then you can wire your switch to a DI and set it up like below.

This example would is assuming the Fan relay is connected to Aux 1 and the override switch is connected to DI1.

No.  DI1 is your switch, this item can have an on or off status.  Virtual aux 1 also has an on or off status, it will be on when the fan temperature/hysteresis conditions are met and off at all other times. 

Aux 1 is the output that controls the fan.  So we tell Aux 1 (the fan) to turn on if DI1 is on OR if virtual aux 1 is on.

If your switch is connected to ground then the pull-up should be on, if the switch is connected to +12V then the pull-up should be off.

Active edge will have no effect for a switch.  

On level just inverts which switch position represents on or off.  If the switch works backwards then change the on level to the oposite.
