Recommendation for design using Simulation - How to interpret

Id like to know if there is a way to focus on an area of the model after running a simulation, in order to get numerical differences between designs at that specific area.  I had a couple issues with welds cracking (Seen circled in blue in the picture), and I think removing the support (Seen in orange),  will relieve some stress in the weld and transfer else where.


Can someone recommend how I go about finding numerical stresses in particular areas, like where the weld goes?


Can anyone explain why the results between the two simulations (one with extra support, one without) are so different? I attached pictures
