What does it mean when I stop accelerating on gas my vue comes to complete stop without braking, and it smells like something is burning under hood.

The brakes are dragging. Common causes are a sticking front brake caliper, a constricted rubber flex hose, a rusted rear parking brake cable stuck partially-applied, and brake fluid contaminated with grease or some other petroleum product.
