Postural malalignment

I am trying to correct my posture and as of know I have a lot of work to do. I experience pain/weakness in my left shoulder when I do bench presses.
The left and right sides of my back are opposite, R upper traps are overly developed and my lower traps are constantly stretched and weak, R lower thoracic and lumbar errectors are underdeveloped, and my R scapula wings out. Like I said before my left is the exact opposite.

I know I have to stretch the tight muscles and strengthen the weak muscles but what I don't know is what are the best exercises to do so and how often I should be doing them.
I have included a picture so that one might have a better idea of what I'm saying.

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
