99 gmc sierra tow/hual when driving comes on and goes off by its self when in drive/od and revs engine when it does

Check that the orange wire in the right side of your steering column is not cut or broken. It has 2 conductors in it. When they short together, it will turn the tow/haul function on or off each time. If they don't touch each other, the tow haul function won't activate.

I have a 2004 GMC 2500hd, 6.0, 4 speed auto trany w/ overdrive, 4.10 gears. When Im driving at 55mph my rpm is at 2000 and when in towing with tow haul on at 55 mph my rpm is at 3000. My motor gets hot and...

When the transmission is in "tow" mode, the converter is unlocked. That causes the engine to run at a higher RPM but also since it's actually slipping internally (by design), it builds heat. If your radiator is the least bit internally obstructed or if you don't have a large enough transmission cooler (mounted externally), or, a combination of both items, everything will get hotter than it should be. Heat is especially bad for your transmission. The fluid chemically breaks down resulting in clutch slippage and burning.
If you do a lot of hauling, I'd get the largest trans cooler available making sure it's attached to the return side of the one inside the radiator and also change the fluid to a good grade of synthetic (resists heat damage far better than conventional fluid). Even if you think it's clean, I'd also flush out the radiator just to make sure.

2006 gmc 2500 vibration around 60 mph stops when I let off gas

Usually a vibration is due to one or more parts that have become worn or damaged. I'm not sure why you mentioned the tires but don't disregard them unless you know that they are fine. Check for correct inflation (on the door jam), for uneven tread wear, or bubbles and damage.
Other things that can cause a vibration is the front-end needing an alignment, a tire that is unbalanced, worn out steering components (like a wheel-bearing), defective u-joints and/or an unbalanced drive-shaft, or low gear-oil level in the drive-axle can cause damage to the ring & pinion gear. The damage would primarily be on one side. So when you let off the gas pedal the sound goes away. Check as much as you can and let me know how it is going.

You should be able to put in 4x4 while in drive less than 35mph. Mine had a switch to turn to engage or dis-engage.
