It doesn't sound good, does it. I honestly couldn't tell you, but he should have checked the fuses, resistors, and your blower motor before he told you that one. If he didn't, go elsewhere. What you should do is get a Hayne's repair manual, and check it out. Or, get a test light, and do some checking. First check the fuse and see if there is power to the blower motor. If there is, then check the resistors, and if they are okay, then the blower motor itself is no good, and will need to be replaced.
Going to a mechanic is just like going to the doctor. It's always good to do your homework before you go so that the doctor and his best friend at the drugstore don't get too many free trips to Hawaii.
I really think a repair manual would help you.

Heater fan only blows on dash vents and not on defrost or floor

the simplist answer is the cable is disconnected from the diverter valve if it;s a manual lever or the vacuum damper is bad that operates the diverter. Lok under the dash board to find.

My AC unit for a 2003 RSX-S does not blow cold air. The heater works fine and the fan is working good as well.

Check for a blown fuse or a bad relay for the compressor clutch. The clutch electrical winding may be open. When the A/C is switched on, the radiator fan should come on even if the engine is cold. If the clutch latches on and drives the compressor, then the freon charge may have leaked away from a bad compressor seal, or other hole in the system.

Extremely light or no heat

your cooling system isn't totally full.  Fill it with the heater on and then bleed out the air.
