Low on freon, faulty pressure switch, faulty clutch. Jumper the low pressure switch with a paperclip (can running, AC on), if the clutch cycles, it's either low on freon, or the low pressure switch is bad.

If I could answer this question, then I wouldn't be asking it. Now would I?

You can add Freon to your 1999 Chevrolet S 10 pickup truck cooling system, through the air conditioning compressor ports. The ports are located on the top of the compressor. You would add r134 refrigerant through the low pressure port located on the accumulator/dryer.

I would start with the basics and look for a blown fuse - there should be a fuse for the air conditioning switches , A/C compressor clutch

Indicates low refrigerant charge - compressor not starting

If the unit is used to cool a hot room (above 75 degrees) and the thermostat is set at or below 60 degrees, this would cause the condenser coils to freeze and damage the compressor. That is why it is recommended to cool a hot room gradually rather than expect instant gratification out of your air conditioning unit. Typically when an Air Conditioning unit has been frozen, it requires a service call to repair the compressor due to the damage of the refrigerant not flowing and the compressor overheating.
