    There is the Halacha Yomit website, which brings daily Halakhot, reponsa, or other Divrei Torah, based on the teachings of R. Ovadia Yosef OBM, that are translated into English. I can't vouch for the extent of it's coverage of the necessary topics for a Jewish life, or it's accessibility by topic in English, though.

It seems to me that you are looking for a compendium of Jewish Laws, a sort of "guidebook to living a Jewish life" from a Sephardic perspective. For centuries, the Shulchan Aruch, written by Sephardic Rabbi Joseph Karo (born, Toledo, Spain 1488, died in 1575, Safed, Eretz Yisrael) has been treated as the definitive guide to halacha, living a Jewish life, and other matters by most Jews around the world. Some sections of the 4 volumes that make up the work have not been completely translated into English, but they are available online at absolutely no cost.


The Institute of Sephardic Halacha (Halachot.com) sends out weekly pamphlets filled with halachot on different topics. You can sign up on their website to receive them. They do a very good job quoting the major Sephardic poskim in a very quick and concise way.
