SOURCE: CANT GET DRUMS OFF BACK BRAKES
If you can spin the drum that means the brake shoes are not tight to the drum so just take a hammer or dead blow and hit the drums a few time that should loosen it up. You can use bolts to push it out but I can't remember what size they were off my head, I know a 12mm socket will fit over it.

if the orginal drums there might be a lip of rust and metal buildup that needs to be cleaned off. try also backing the adjuster off to allow the drum to go over the shoes, do the shoes look the same as the old ones, just more materal? Don't forget to adjust the shoes back to the drum so you gte a good pedal feel, and the rear brakes will work properly

Removing the rear brake drums vary little from one vehicle to the next.First,loosen the lugs on the rear wheels,release the hand brake, block the front wheels,jack up the rear and use jackstands.Then remove the rear wheels.Looking at the drum after the wheels have been removed, you will notice two threaded holes one on each side of the axle flange.Give the brake drum a smart rap or two with a plastic mallet or piece of wood and spray the flange w/ WD 40 or brake parts cleaner.Obtain a bolt with the exact size and thread to fit the hole. I found it useful to "borrow" such bolt from around the work area-My favorite is the one fastening a cable or a hoseclamp to the differential.If that don't fit, look around under the hood:there's one there you can use.Thread the bolt into the hole alternating from one hole to the other.The bolt pushes the drum against a flange inside and removes the drum.After work, adjust the star wheel brake adjuster so that the drum turns with hand push with a little drag.

SOURCE: How to remove rear brake
The drum brake should just slid off, but if it is not coming off easily then you have excessive wear in the drum and you will need to de-adjust the brake shoes so that they don't catch on the inside of the drum while you are trying to remove them.
The below shows what you need to do:
This is the procedure.
