what is brown "stuff" coming out of front center vent? falls apart when touched on 2000 Toyota Sienna

this brown 'stuff' looks a little like insulation of some sort. also when fan is on high, there is a loud humming noise/vibration with ac or heat. noise seems to be up front on passenger side. sounds like coming from under dash. ??
