It would either be a bad wire in the circuit from the brake light switch on the brake pedal to the bulbs, OR the bulbs have 2 filaments in them and the one that comes on when you apply the brakes are worn out, OR someone put the wrong bulbs in(single filament). I would change the 2 bulbs first.

04 alero front brakes get hot why?

This could be for a few reasons, but if they are getting hot without you applying them, I would suggest that they are sticking and causing the pads to rub on the discs, or if they are drum brakes, the shoes on the drums. If they are only getting hot as a result of using the brakes, I would suggest checking that the brakes are balanced properly, and that the front brakes are not doing all of the work/ or that the back brakes are working at all.

How would you change the brakes on a 2002 Subaru Outback?

If I were asking here it would mean I have never changed brakes before. Although the process is fairly simple you can do things wrong that would prevent the brakes from working properly. Your first time needs to be with the oversight of someone who has changed brakes before. Better yet, have a qualified mechanic do it for you. Your life and the lives of others may hang in the balance.
