What is the difference between drive 1 and drive 2 in a car?

Drive 1 locks the automatic transmission into first gear (preventing an upshift). Very good to use when parked or stopped on a very steep slope and you need to move forward and do not want the transmission to shift. Drive 2 locks the automatic transmission into second gear. This is sometimes referred to as a "snow" drive position, as it causes the engine power to be applied to the wheels much more slowly (via converter slippage within the transmission) minimizing actual wheel-spin when accelerating from a stopped position.

When you put your 99' Grand Prix in reverse it mildy shakes and there is a strong burning fluid smell coming from the driver side it only has problems in reverse any ideas?

It sounds like the 99 Grand Prix has slippage in the reverse band, or a stopped fluid path. Changing the transmission fluid and filter could help, if not then the transmission needs to be checked by a transmission since the band is inside of it.
