I have attempted to find various locations using the coordinates on google earth and when I plug them into my gps I am not close to what I am attempting to find. Is there a conversion from google earth to gps or am I missing something?

I could be wrong but I think you can change the format you put the coordinates into the GPS. I believe this is your problem.
You are correct, the datum information is adjustable but i don't know what datum information is used by google earth.
Google earth uses WGS84.
This is a quote from the web page.
"Currently, files using NAD83 projection are not supported by Google Earth."
the datum information is located at the bottom of the link.

This link might be more useful.
