This sounds a lot like you are suffering from calluses. but I think they have been there for a long time and may have deteriorated , or become infected. That is causing ther smell.
You Must as a matter of urgency see either your doctor for treatment of the infection, or a podiatrist

how long have you had this yellow hard skin, does it cover the balls of the foot and the heel? is it worse in hot weather?
