Hard to say. When burnishing in new pads, you should make 20-30 stops on flat roads going from 25 mph to a stop and allowing time for the rotors to cool as needed. A burning smell is not necessarily abnormal however.

What would cause a 2003 maxima to shake when hitting the brakes?

A common reason is that the front rotors have warped. Go check out WikiAnswers on the topic of "warped brake rotors". Rotors should wear out smoothly in normal driving. Use of the brakes that generate lots of heat (hard braking, riding the brakes) will result in warped rotors.

How often do rotors need to be replaced on a Mercedes?

It depends on your driving style and the condition of the calipers. If you ride the brakes or otherwise drive in such a manner as to cause the brakes to overheat, the rotors will warp prematurely. If you are constantly in stop-and-go driving conditions you will wear out the brake pads and rotors much faster than someone who drives greater distances and seldom uses the brakes. I've seen some people who get little more than 20,000 miles from brakes and/or rotors. My last brake pads and rotors had over 70,000 miles when I changed them, but then, we drive long distances here.

Is it normal for new brake pads and rotors to smoke at first?

yes it is normal due to an oily residue on new rotors. it is recommended to use brake cleaner and or warm soapy water to remove the oils but not absolutely necessary. they will operate fine with the oil residue still on them but expect them to smoke and smell funny, it is normal . it takes a little bit for the brakes to get worn in as well as the rotors so start braking earlier than normal and don't slam on them until you feel them acting like normal or you will put grooves in the rotors and possibly the brakes as well wich will give your car that shake in the steering wheel and you will have to replace pads and pay to have the rotors turned or possibly replace the pads and rotors again due to an un-even surface.

Either warped rotors or drums can cause pulsating. Apply the parking brake slowly while going about 15mph and see if t pulsates. If it does, it is the drums that need turning. If not, it is the rotors that need turning.
