lateral runout. your rotors or drums are warped and need to be machined or replaced depending on the thickness. if your slamming the brakes this is normal its your antilock braking system functioning as it should to keep you from sliding.

The brake pedal goes to the floor and they act as if they're pulsating?

Sounds like a bad booster. If you can't pump up the brakes to get a firm pedal while engine on, you might want to have it checked. If they're ABS brakes and you hold the pedal firmly, it should feel like they're pulsating but the pedal shouldn't just go to the floor. Could be the master cylinder.
