I don't think it is the parking brake because the front brakes won't completely release either.

run the fault codes to check for ABS fault. replace master cylinder as the compensating ports are blocked.

2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 New Rotors, Calipers, Pads, and rubber lines, why do all four brakes not release completely and they get hot?

I would think it is something going on with the master cylinder or booster. Even the ABS could be affecting it.

Brake light stays on after releasing parking brake pedal feels a little soft

Check the parking brake cable to make sure it is moving freely and allowing the brakes to completely release when you pull the release lever. Sometimes dirt and rust will lock the cable. In this case, the parking brake pedal will still sit on the switch even though it is unlocked because the spring can't pull it and the cable back to the off position.

Changed the rear brake pads and now the brakes wont release.

When you replaced the pads did you make sure the calipers were working properly?, did you bleed the brake lines?, is emergency brake cable completely releaseing the rear brakes or is it hung up somewere?. Check these things first and if all is OK get it to mechanic.

Brakes do not completely release at times,

Might be bad brake lines if front (the rubber ones). When they get old they collapse when you apply the brakes and they won't let the brake fluid go back to the master cylinder until the pop back open.
