Th seat is held down by four nuts or bolts (2 front 2 rear), varies by model, remove the bolts front and rear, disconnect the lectrical conectors at bottom of seat and remove seat or tilt back to access the seat track.

Drivers seat is stuck in farthest back position and will not slide forward.

Check under the seat where the guide rails are and look tovsee if the wire underneath is pulling to release both sides of the seat on the rails or one side. If it's not releasing both sides you have to check to make sure there is nothing stuck in the guide rails (coins perhaps). If all is clear you'll have to adjust the rod or cable that attaches to the lever of the seat to make it release both sides so the seat unlocks and moves easily.

Having trouble removing the gear shifter panel to replace the lamp- it no longer lights up- for 1999 volvo s70

Great question.

You don't remove the shifter, you have to remove the panel around it first.
You start by removing the coin holder then the stuff holder, they just pop off. If you have heated seats then you pop the buttons from bellow and unplug them. Pull the panel up carefully. Sometimes spilled soda that got into the shifter cover make it stick like glue. I use plastic wedges to not damage anything, You can pull it up half way or just take it all of. The e-brake handle cover pops off too and just pop it off at the center console.
While your there make sure to wipe it all clean and retrieve all the coins that fell in. lol

Sometimes coins or other items get stuck in the track. Might have to remove the seat and try to free the track. If all looks ok, unbolt both motors and move to a more desirable position.
