There are Two bolts that come from the front (inside grill) that keep the reservoir from being lifted out. Loosen bolt(s) and you should be able to remove the reservoir.

Approx.50# fuel pressure at test port, engine will only start with starting fluid and then die.

I worked on a 1999 Suburban a couple weeks ago, it had good fuel pressure and spark but wouldn't run. No check engine light. It turned out the catalytic converters were plugged. After I took the exhaust pipes loose at the manifold it started right up. Just a thought.

My 1999 suburban brake fluid in small reservoir is empty. What affect will this have on the ability of the rest of the system to work? It is my understanding that it has a dual brake system and need to...

This sounds like you have a broken break line, a leaking wheel cylinder or a leaking master cylinder. The small reservoir is for the rear breaks. I would recommend getting it fixed before you continue your trip. If the leak is not repaired, you may do damage to the anti-lock breaking system ( if equipped) as well as other break components. If you get into a position of having to rely on the breaks they may fail completely and cause an accident.

My 99 gmc suburban has brake fluid leaking from the reservoir.Looks like its coming from under the reservoir. Does the res push in to the orings or are there screws holding it in

Most of them push in. It sounds as if the reservoir may have a hole or crack in it. If you replace this always use a new one not used. A used one could be contaminated and cause more problems than it repairs.
