What is the use of display-1 and display-2? Is it used in IBM cobol? If not, what is its equivalent function in IBM cobol?

Neither is used in any version of mainframe COBOL that I'm aware of. Before we could tell you any equivalent function, you would have to tell us what they do.

Enterprise COBOL supports use of USAGE DISPLAY-1 for DBCS data. You can find plenty about DBCS in the COBOL manuals or by using Google.
