Is sulfur dioxide a greenhouse gas?

In short no. It is however one of the main contributors to acid rain and sulphur dioxide dissolves in rain water to form sulphurous acid. The main greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen oxides (which also causes acid rain). Nitrogen oxide is a small percentage greenhouse gas (approx 6-7%) but is still significant because it is about 300 times more potent that carbon dioxide at 'trapping' solar radiation.

Explain why carbon dioxide is called a greenhouse gas.?

A greenhouse gas is a gas that absorbs infrared radiation, traps heat in the atmosphere, and contributes to the greenhouse effect. Carbon dioxide, methane and chlorofluorocarbons are examples of greenhouse gases.

Are oxygen and nitrogen important greenhouse gases?

Independently, oxygen and nitrogen are not greenhouse gases (though N2O, NO and NO2 are greenhouse gases). The most important greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide. Methane, although found in quite low concentrations is also important because of its proportionately greater effect.

Carbon dioxide is heavier then air how can it be a greenhouse gas?

Gases mix when in contact, they do not separate. If they did the atmosphere of the Earth would be in layers - carbon dioxide, argon, oxygen, nitrogen - as the gas specific gravity decreases.
