The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

You must have some issue with the master cylinder. May be leaking or internally bypassing. Check the fluid level? Look at the back side of the wheels for traces of fluid on the tire/rims.
When ABS is not working it is not supposed to cause the vehicle to not stop or the pedal to go to the floor. ABS not working will just make the brakes work as if they never had ABS and would lock under hard breaking.
