What does it mean that the ESC is off and service traction control?

(2009 Chevrolet Malibu)
in Milford, MI on July 04, 2012
When I accelerate the car sputters and can't seem to shift to the next gear. The ESC is out is display and service traction control. If I ease off the gas it shifts and accelerate slugishly. I had it plugged in to read the error codes. I was told the O2 sensor or the cat converter need to be replaced.
