The President can never appoint someone to fill a Senate vacancy. The U.S. Constitution allows the Governor of the state to which the vacant seat is entitled to make a temporary appointment to fill the seat until a special election can be held, but only if the state legislature has passed a bill allowing him/her to do so.

Actually there is one Senate vacancy for which the President appoints a replacement: the U.S. Vice President, who constitutionally is also the President of the Senate. Vice presidential appointments require the approval of both houses of Congress.

How long does a Vice President remain in office If the President of the US is unable to perform his duties?

The Vice President could become Acting President in the event of Presidential disability, and there is no codified term. A new Vice President would not be nominated. Should the Vice President succeed to the Presidency, then he would serve out the remainder of that President's term, and a new Vice President would ordinarily be nominated to fill the Vice President's unexpired term.
