why cant you use real aircraft speeds on the fs aircrafts

I have been trying to use real aircraft speeds such as mach. 80 it gives me a sign of overspeed also can anybody tell me where to get an aircraft with clickable overhead buttons

Try here:

http://www.precisionmanuals.com/ for the aircraft you want. Their planes (payware) seem to be well-liked and have operational overhead panels.

As to the speed thing - are you sure you are at a sufficiently high altitude for Mach 0.8? It would be normal to use KIAS below, well, maybe FL260.

You can travel at Mach .80 in FS but as with the real aircraft, you have to be at the correct altitude. Real aircraft have speed restrictions set by the manufacturer for safety reasons that vary by altitude. Normally you would have to be above FL 280(28,000 feet) in order to travel at Mach .80.

Mach is the ratio of the speed of sound. At higher temperatures, sound travels faster. Mach .80 results in a faster true airspeed at 20,000 feet(-25 C) than at 30,000 feet(-45 C) because of the difference in temperature.
