No this wouldn't be the blower resistor. If the blower resistor was bad then the speed selection would only work in high speed mode and no other. If air will not route through the air vents then their could possibly be a bad vent door motor or vacuum diaphragm. Check those.
"Load resistor" is a discriptor, not a value. Any resistor can be a load resistor if it is the proper value and power for your application. So if you want a load resistor by itself, that makes no sense. A load resistor is a resistor selected for a specific purpose. For example, it you want to put a load on an audio amplifier made to drive an 8 ohm speaker to 50 watts, then your load resistor would be a 8 ohm 50 watt resistor. If you want a load resistor to terminate a 50 ohm line, you would need a 50 ohm resistor, although in this case, you probably want one that is part of a co-ax connector. A load resistor for an op-amp output is typically 2k, since most op-amps are rated for 10 volts at 5 mA. Etc, etc.
Without actually performing a failure analysis on the specific resistor, there is no way to know what caused the blower motor resistor to fail. However, there are two likely causes, design and/or implementation. First a little info on the setup. The blower motor is a brushed motor. One way to use the same motor and get different speeds is to vary the voltage to the motor. More voltage will give more speed, less voltage will give less speed. One way to "adjust" the voltage to the motor is to put a resistor in the power line to the motor. The resistor will "absorb" voltage and give off the absorbed voltage as heat. The Malibu uses 4 different resistors to create 5 total blower speeds. The 5th setting is with no resistor in line. As the resistor absorbs voltage and gives off heat, eventually the resistor will burn out and need to be replaced. There are many different quality levels of resistors. Some resistors are high quality and will last longer than the car will be used. Some resistors are low quality and will fail while the car is still in service. Engineering selected the particular resistor used in the resistor pack. Perhaps, if the resistor burned out, the design is at fault as the part wasn't selected correctly. Implementation could be how the part was installed, perhaps the solder joint (how the resistor is connected) failed as the solder wasn't flowed correctly. There is nothing you could have done as a consumer to increase or decrease the life of the resistor.
