Raise hood,have some one go pull hood latch and you look at latch and see if it releases,if it doesn't then cable may need replacing,I would'nt completely shut hood cause you may not get back open,also check hood latches bolts and latch for something bent or broken.

My heat works, but my AC does not. It makes a noise if turned on and gives the car the shakes and does not even pretend to blow cold air.

The noise you hear is probably the belt slipping. Turn the A/C switch on and look at the compressor under the hood. the part of the pully on the front side of the belt should spin, stop periodically and then start spinning again. It's tough to tell from here but the odds are that the belt may need to be changed and the system charged with Freon. When the freon level gets too low , the system won't start up and cool the car.

Best wishes.
