Wow! Sounds like the drive belt may be slipping or a pulley locking up.
You don't hear the belt squealing? Someone else may know something here. don-ohio (:^)

How do you change the rod and pinion

I'd say before doing anything costly have a look at your power steering fluid level and make sure it's topped up, most of the time a stiff steering wheel is cause by either a low fluid level or faulty power steering pump ( in this case the engine would make noise every time you turn the wheels). Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

Very hard to steer wheel in my 2003 gmc yukon and there is plenty of steering fuid in it

Turn car off - Remove power steering cap, and turn streering wheel hard right or left and fluid should pour out (cover surroundings with rags.) If so, check your power steering pump.

Power streering went and fluid is pouring out the bottom? I need to know if this is a rack and pinion system.

Possibly, but more likely a break in the high pressure hose that runs from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion assembly.

When start move forward, it is hard to turn steering wheel to right side

But it turns to the left OK? the streering gear is the only thing that can power one way and not the other. Some 4WD can have troble with the outher U joints or CV axel but that is mostly both ways not one way only

Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm

Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.
