Depends on front or rear. Usually if the piston is dished or shaped like a bowl or cup, you will squeeze it in. If it is flat with little knotches or grooves cut into it you will twist it in.

Can i use a different rear caliper for 2003 Hyundai Tiburon?

The twist is to compensate for break wear for your parking brake. Seeing how you shouldn't have to deal with it except at brake changes I wouldn't worry about it unless it is affecting brake performance.

Whats the best way to squeeze the 4 pistons back into the caliper?

If your talking about front disk calipers use a caliper compressor, if you talking about the rear calipers, bleed the rear caliper while compressing the pistons in with your fingers or pliers.

Parking brakes dont work

89 regals are notorious for bad brake design. Especially rear disc brakes. The calipers get hung up, and you end up with premature brake pad/rotor wear. The parking brake, when applied, squeezes the caliper against the disc, hence keeping the car still. If the caliper is frozen, when you push the emergency brake, it can't squeeze the caliper anymore than it is.
OR, the parking brake cable needs adjustment. Have a mechanic look over your rear brakes and parts.

Replacing front calipers

It is usually easier to disconnect the flexible brake hoses where they join up to the solid ones first then you can remove them from the caliper end without getting them twisted.
