If you notice a bit of a hard pedal,i,d have the check valve, and the Brake booster checked it may have a cracked diaphram,causing a vacummn leak.Probably what your hearing. .

What could this be? I need help please

Vacuum leak. Open the hood and try to locate where the hissing sound is coming from. Likely a rotted rubber vacuum hose somewhere.

Why would my brakes hiss when I step on them and cause the engine to rev up when I do this? It also makes the vehicle very hard to stop.

It sounds like your brake booster is leaking. The air hissing is the air going into the leak. This extra air goes into the engine and causes the engine to rev up. The booster is what makes it easy to push the brake, (when it is working correctly) which is why the pedal is hard to push.

94 s10 chevy 2wd brake pedal fades to floor before stoping

Might check around the big black round muffin shaped chamber adjacent to the master cylinder for a loose vacuum hose or crack therin; the hissing sound seems likely to be the air rushing in as you loose the vacuum that supplies the power to assist your braking effort (power brakes)---as this goes, so goes your peddle until it reaches the actual piston pushing the brake fluid (which should be firm like with non-power brakes).
...maybe have an assistant push on the peddle while you listen with a piece of hose or a stethescope to find the leak (or I suppose the power unit diaphragm could be shot/leaking--hence replacement), but since you said after bumpy road etc, one could hope for a simple dislodged vacuum hose or fixable crack.

Abs trac control light goes on at start up then off

It sounds like an ABS sensor or some other sensor going out. IF it's the main computer for the traction/handling system that's big $$$$$ like $1300+ I think.
This problem frequently starts out as occasional, goes to frequent, and then full time.  It usually relates to the ABS/TC assembly on the frame in front of the engine. 
It is made of two parts, the EBTCM (the electronic part) wich is bolted to the mechanical half, the BPMV (Brake pressure modulating valve.) Sometimes the electronic grounds for this assembly get corroded or loose. Bad connectors for the ABS speed sensors at each wheel hub can also go bad.

EBTCM = Electronic Brake Traction Control Module
Good luck and hope this helps.

Brake hissing noise

Sounds like it could well be the brake servo unit.

When I drive my honda accord 1995 2.2l and I make a stop, the brake pedal starts loosing pressure and goes all the way to the button.or if the car is running I have to push the brake pedal more than 2...

first thing to check is your fluid level. ensure you have enough fluid in your master cylinder. it sounds like you have air in the system. its not really hard to bleed. just get a friend to come over and one of you climb under the car with a bucket and a wrench and some rags. open the bleeder valve on the calipers and have your buddy press the pedal. once oil shoots out straight from the valve close it while its still squirting. if the oil has alot of air in it have your buddy keep pumping to until its not. also make sure you watch your master cylinder level as you are just squirting it all out. do that to all the brakes. as far as it being the master cylinder thats a way later thing. you check the fluid level/air in lines first. as far as the abs. is your abs light on? problem with abs is that it requires specialized work so your best bet is taking it to a shop. but if there isnt air in the lines and there is plenty of fluid then start looking at your brake adjustment. if that is good then possibly the master or slave cylinder

Bad Brakes

I would be looking at the ABS valve. one way to test the booster is to start the vehicle while you ae depressing the brake pedal, you should feel the brake pedal drop a little bit, this is a sign that the boostr is working properely. you may want to check to see if there is any air in your system as well.
hope that this helps.
