    ж and ш

    Does that mean I've been pronouncing these seemingly simple Russian consonants wrong all this time?

    probably yes. They are not the same as the similar sounds in English.

    On the plus side, this makes it a lot easier to distinguish between ш and щ now

    ?

    Щ is palatalized Ш. They are not very different.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
