"S" stands for sport. In this setting, the transmission has higher thresholds for upshifts and downshifts a lot faster. There are 2 sport settings, S3, which only goes up to 3rd gear and it is useful for driving on hilly terain, and S4 which is like drive, but with higher thresholds.

Why is my 1991 Acura Legend gear shift stuck in park?

I don't know the Acura as they are not in the UK But it may well have safety device fitted that will not allow you to shift from park unless your foot is on the brake pedal. If this is the case, check that the brake lights are working, if they are not it may indicate a faulty brake light switch.
