This is normal on GM vehicles. The motor always runs at a very low speed.

Depends on what you mean by heater will not work. If the blower motor will not work, it can be a blown fuse, bad blower motor, bad blower motor switch, or a defective blower motor resistor pack. If you mean that the blower motor works but there is no heat, then it can be a clogged heater core, thermostat stuck open, or defective heater control valve.

Can a single pole switch replace a starter?

If you are talking about motor control then the answer is yes. There are two things to take into account though. One, is the motor thermally protected. This is for overload protection. On fractional HP motors it will indicate this on the nameplate. If the motor is not protected, then a fractional HP motor switch should be used. Incorporated into this switch is a heater element that the motor current flows through. If the motor current gets over the motor nameplate rating then the heater trips the switch and shuts the motor off. The other thing is that the switch has to be motor rated, currents and voltage matching the motor nameplate ratings. The specific switch has been designed to open motor currents under full motor loads. An ordinary house light switch is not motor load rated and should not be used for this purpose.

If by quit working you mean quit blowing, the things to troubleshoot are the blower motor, the blower motor resistor switch, or the blower motor speed selector switch. If by quit working you mean it only blows cold or warm air, the thermostat is probably stuck in the open position.
