Hi. I am looking at booking to seats from Paris to Amsterdam on Rail Europe. We have a 1st class Global Pass. I can book the seat reservations but cannot see where I can select specific seats. Is this possible on Rail Europe or at all?

Apparently you can't anywhere. Not even for regular tickets on the Eurostar website. Maybe you can change your seats on the Eurostar website, using "Manage booking”. You can do that for reservations from/to London, so maybe this is now also possible for their continental routes.

When I use Rail Europe the class is Standard. Is there no first class on these trains?

Sure there is. However, since the reservation in 2nd class is cheaper on Eurostar, Rail Europe will show that reservation first. You can change it in the dropdown though, if 1st class is available. If pass holder reservations are only left in 2nd class, then you can only choose 2nd class.
