The question that I am asking is that is D7 chord a secondary substitute of the C major scale and what is a secondary substitute chord anyway?

In the key of C Major, D7 is a secondary dominant chord; a brief rationale for secondary dominant chords could be as follows: they make use of some note outside the key (in C Major, either # or b) to bring a change in the function of the chord. For instance, D7 makes use of F# in order to provide the so called leading tone (F#, instead of F) as to pull the chord into G (that is, the perfect cadence of D into G-where F# moves upward onto G; instead of the natural key-based perfect cadence of G into C).
