If you are getting a burning smell with the AC on you should turn the system off immediately by cutting power to it. You can do this at the circuit breaker or there should be a shut off switch.
It could be the blower motor, a belt (if your compressor has one) that is slipping and burning, or something else. Either way the fumes are very likely not safe to breath and you should bring in a certified HVAC tech to diagnose and fix the problem.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
