Question about 1993 Honda Prelude
If there are no visable nuts etc i'd say it needs a gentle tap with a rawhide hammer , cover with come cloth and tap away gently , may have got stuck in position due to heat etc

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....
I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.
What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick response. Very much appreciated your input, all makes sense and got my mind on the right track again. Thanks"
hi there, i have 2 mazda6s, both off which i needed to removed the inner axels on, so far you have done every thing right :), but unfortunatly due to mazdas sloppy assembly the inner axles are near impossible to remove, you could try getting a 2 or 3 legged puller and remove the brake calliper and disk then try and "pull" the shaft out, but unfortunatly i doubt will work. your second option would be to use a hydraulic ram to press it out, but again due to mazdas sloppy work it is near impossible with out damaging the hub, ive tryed both option and none of wich worked, so i brought 4 second hand hubs and outer C.Vs, hope this helps.

The cylinder head temperature must be below 100 degrees F (38 degrees C); allow the engine to cool several hours if the car has been recently driven. Turn the crankshaft pulley so that the number one piston is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.
When the power steering hose is disconnected, the fluid will flow out. Cover the alternator with a shop towel to prevent the fluid from leaking into it.
Do not crimp or bend the timing belt.

There are two belts in this system; the one running to the camshaft pulley is the timing belt. The other, shorter one drives the balance shaft and is referred to as the balancer belt or timing balancer belt. Use a piece of chalk or a marker to place an identifying arrow on the belts. The arrow can identify the direction of rotation or the outer edge of the belts. The belts must be reinstalled so it moves in the same direction. Protect the belts from oil, coolant, etc. It's an even better idea to replace the belts at this point.
