As for "bachiller en xxx," this would be (simply) "high school diploma/graduate"

bachillerato = high school diploma
bachiller = high school graduate

For the benefit of the KudoZ Open Glossary (KOG), in the future, you might consider posting two separate questions. In regards to "bachiller," you might also consult the KOG; there are probably entries there that might be of some use.

Good luck!
