If you can't get emergency backed off to allow for movement, then you'll have to get small pointed object (screwdriver or whatever) in adjustment hole to lift lever holding adjuster wheel, then back off adjuster wheel at same time until free. If it's emergency cables seized at backing plate area, try spraying where cable goes into sleeve with penetrating spray, and rap sleeves of cables going into backing plate with a stick, or screwdriver handle and it may help them retract enough to loosen up shoes in drum. Good Luck.

with a small flat head screw driver at the back of brakes there should be a adjusment nut turn one and half turns and it should bring in the shoes if the drum to loose turn it the other way the drum shold just slide on when the drum is on try spinning the drum if spins freely adjust untill you feel binding and just slacking off a bit

Before you begin make sure your emergency brake is off.
1. Jack up the car and remove rear tires.
2. With a 13mm socket and ratchet remove the 4 bolts that are on the back of the hub assembly. (You will need an extension and a universal joint adapter)
3. Pull the drum off and the spindle will come off with it, giving you access to the shoes, wheel cylinder, hold down hardware, etc... (you may need to adjust your brake shoes so the drum will slide off easier.)
Do not undo the nut in the middle of the drum (under the dust cap) unless you absolutely need to turn the drum or replace the drum as the threads on the spindle are known to strip very easily. Should you need to take it off the socket for the spindle nut is a 30mm.
