You have an exhaust leak. Either a busted manifold, bad gasket, hole in your exhaust system. You fix it by repairing the leak. Ignore this and you may end up killing yourself. Get this fixed ASAP, if not sooner. In the mean time drive with your windows down.

What would cause a headache when exhaust fumes enter the cabin when the heater is turned on a 1996 Buick Regal how can this be fixed?

Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas. It would be my guess that the fumes are entering all the time with the fan helping to circulate. My guess is that the catalytic converter is clogged. The indication of this is poor power, terrible fuel economy, and if you look under the car at night, a glowing red converter. VBD I don't know how to fix it but get it fixed because it sounds as though you are getting carbon monoxide poisoning which can kill.

What are the symptoms of an exhaust leak in a 2001 Subaru Outback and how long can you drive the car with this issue Also what other issues will come up if it doesn't get fixed right away?

Generally, the engine will sound louder. If you take a rolled up rag (so you don't burn your hand) and hold it tightly over the exhaust pipe while the engine is idling, you will hear a sound like compressed air leak. How long you can avoid repairing it depends on how much you value your life. Leaking exhaust can enter the cabin and carbon monoxide in the exhaust is deadly. Leaking exhaust does no other specific damage to the car unless the hot exhaust blasts against something flammable or the exhaust system falls off.
