Smelled wires burning inside home for 2 weeks , not located by any professional
, wires going into the outside unit found melted going to the compressor , can I
just replace the melted wires with # 14 wire ? And did it burn the contact
switch ? Need help today ! Also turning off the outside disconnect enough or do
I need to cut power at the breaker box as well ?

This is a dangerous situation. Wires are not supposed to melt, in a proper wiring setup a circuit breaker or fuse should blow first.
Get an electrician to determine the cause problem and only then fix the problem.
