So I've seen something used on some sites where instead of like/dislikes the site uses a reaction to something ie disagree, agree, informative, garbage, etc
and I think something like that works far better

Not really. People still use reactions as surrogates for likes & dislikes. All you'd be doing is adding more options rather than improving the function/user behaviour. 99% of "I don't like this/this is bad" votes would be "garbage" in your example.

Exactly. It wouldn't change a thing. Then again, it won't happen anyway since spaghetti code.
