You'll be ok to drive with it. BUT you're going to get terrible gas mileage (if you weren't already) and no performance. You can get them lots of places online. Just browse for a good price.

The 02 sesor reads the exaust gases coming out of exaust valves to detect proper combustion. The second one might me an after-cat O2 sensor and let the system know when the cat isn't functioning properly.

One is located before the CAT, the other just after the CAT.

yes you can drive it for a while without causing terrible damage. however, driving it without having the O2 sensors changed may later cause damage in your catalytic converter - which can be EXPENSIVE.
