The headrests need to raised to their fullest extension first.
Then the release button is just down from the top of the seat under the back cover. Search around with your fingers you should be able to find it. In mine it has actually left a little indentations in the material. You depress that button and out they come.

The seat backs are hard to get off.
At the very bottom there are two screws holding the seat back up onto the seat. The seat back then is supposed to slide down and off BUT they are an extremely tight fit. I have yet to get mine off as I am worried about breaking them. Unfortunately it is the only way to get into the hearest mechansim for raising/lowering.
If they have never been off and the car is (like mine) almost 25 years old I suspect they will be jammed tight and require a lot of grunting and groaning.
I did see a suggestion of getting someone to sit in the seat and opush back with their body which apparently eases the "join" to the back cover and makes it easier. Yet to try this

no the button is just a release the lock on the headrest "inner" leg from the seat - all it does I believe is stop the headrest from extending too far up if it put by electronic means (i.e door switch)

Check out these two pictures also
