The defrost function simply directs air over the inside of you windshield. It's temperature is controlled by the temperature dial on your environmental controls.

Can you but bacon in a hot pot to defrost?

If you do it will probably overheat the outer pieces, while not defrosting the pieces on the inside. This could also result in the outer pieces becoming too warm, causing a food borne illness. A better way to do it if you don't have a microwave with a defrost setting is to place it in the sink, then let cold water run over it until it's defrosted enough to separate the slices. Depending on how quickly you need it, you can stand it up, leaning against the side of the sink and let the water run slowly, or let it run faster if needed. Even though my microwave has a defrost setting, I've used this method quite a lot, and it works well. I actually prefer it over defrosting it in the microwave.

When you turn on the car the headlight rear defrost and fan for the ac and defrost doesn't work How do you fix this?

If you can make the fan run by turning the speed switch to position 5 (hi speed) and make the headlights work by switching them on manually, replace the ignition switch in the steering column to cure this problem. It sounds odd, but that's the fix. Own one, been there, fixed that.
