    Is it the fan speed that is the problem? Or is it how warm or cold the air is?

    It appears that your compressor is not turning on, based on what you're saying.

    This could be because the system is too low in charge to function (due to a leak), or it could be because of an electrical problem (coil issue, cycle switch issue, wiring issue).

    Patrick has it pretty well explained already.

    A hands on diagnosis is required.

    The air being blown out the vents may just be air drawn in from the outside of the car and is not cooled down/refrigerated. Do you hear the air conditioning compressor engage when the a/c is turned on. The a/c compressor is driven by a fan belt at the front of the engine, the compressor has a "clutch' on the front of the compressor that electrically engages when the a/c is switched on by the driver. The problem could be electrical or it could be a problem with any part of the a/c system. It needs to be investigated by someone familiar with air conditioning but this system is not complicated on this car.

    the air never gets cold,only when it turns cool/cold outside,and when im sitting still i can turn on the air system and it will blow out air,but when i mash the a/c button i dont hear a change in the motor or anything,and i have it on the hightest speed that it can go,i had someone try to put freon in it but,it would not take any in at all.
