Sounds like you probably have at least two different problems.
One being a low refrigerant charge or component failure, and the other an air flow distribution problem. A/C systems are much too complicated to try to diagnose over the internet, especially with little information.
Needed information would be outside temperature, low and high side pressure readings, outlet temperature as well as cooling system condition.
My advise to you would be to take your ride to an auto a/c shop for a check out. Most a/c specialty shops do not charge for an estimate, and if they do, it will be worth the few bucks they charge to know what is wrong with the system and how much to repair. A lot of times, poor cooling is an indication of a low refrigerant charge. Your air flow problem could be a weak motor, a vacuum supply issue, wiring problem, or an air distribution box problem.
