First I would hit the cable and see if it retracts if not I would try heating the cable going to the drum if that works you will have to replace the cables

    You could also cut the cable a foot or so from the drum and then try to force a penetrant type oil down there

Your cables are probably siezed--try spraying the cable where they go into the housing with penetrating oil like WD40 sometimes this works.

SOURCE: high pitched squeal when braking, but plenty of pad

I agree and nothing in life is easy unless you enjoy what you have to do. So you need to strip both sides. Remove all hub rust.rotor mounting suface rust, pad and caliper rust, then machine or replace rotors and pads unless all this was just done. The parking brake is either in the rear caliper or some veh have what your uncle said. If the caliper is corroded inside you replace,The brake cables and any adjustment or computer intervention ,you will be on your own as I don't have the veh to help you. Most car issues are lack of knowledge and no maintenance. No harm intended and would love to help. If your doing this yourself you should be able to screw the rear caliper pistons in and manually ratchet them up to the pads after you reinstall the caliper, if it was removed.

SOURCE: the parking brake in my

Is it a "stick" in the console between the driver and passenger seats, or is it a pedal you push down? If it is in the center console, try starting the car, putting it from park into NEUTRAL with your foot on the brake, and pull up on the stick a little while pushing in the button. If the button goes in, push the handle back down, put the car back into park, and take your foot off the brake. I'm not real familiar with the Pacifica, so a description of the parking brake would help.

How do I release a stuck on emergency park brake?

if your e-brake is stuck then you could look at the unit on the side and there should be a small lever that you can pull to release the brakes if the cable is not working, the cables themselves could be frozen? or something mechanical inside the drums or calipers in the rear that could be stuck and not moving. there is a possibility that the master cylinder is at fault, but rare. you can open the rear wheel bleed valves and see if the vehicle can move? if so, then check the rubber lines to the wheels? to be bad

Parking brake stuck on

the cable is most likely rusted and stuck in position. there are two or three of them in the system. you are going to have to get under it, find them and see which one is stuck. generally you will buy a new set that has all cables in it. as they are all generally rusted together that is normal. not hard to replace but remember to run the cables through any guides provided and put some chain lube on any swivel or pinch points. if you are not up to that, you can find where the parking brake cable exits the rear brake
on either side and lube and pull and push on it until you get the cable to relax and the brake to release. do this on both sides and then disconnect the parking brake handle or pedal inside the car so no one ever sets it again. you will have no parking brake.

Rear brakes wont release

Usually a stuck parking brake. Make sure the parking brake is disengaged then check the cable that leads to the back brakes for any tension that would keep them applied. If you are in a wintry area then they might be frozen. A small rubber mallet or small amount of heat can help break them free then.

Where i can find the hand brake

There is no hand brake. It is foot operated. The pedal will be on the driver side kick panel, and the release handle is under the dash in the same area.

High pitched squeal when braking, but plenty of pad

Yes it could be a stuck parking brake. Try disconnecting the cable on that side to see if it will release. If it releases the problem is the cable if not the problem is in the brakes. If the cable you can try to lube the cable with a penatrating oil and work the cable off and on to try to free it up. If it doesn't free up replace the cable.
