Question about 1991 Chevrolet S-10
If you're going to keep that S10, and apparently you are as you are replacing the brakes, go to an auto parts store and buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual. It will give you step by step instructions, and will guide you on which tools to use to do any particular job. An investment of $15 - $20 for the manual will more than pay for itself in time saved and minimum frustration.

4,remove wheel place key in ignition lock and turn to first position and turn to full lock
5,go back to the side that the wheel is off and you should see the brake calliper in the top of it will be a large slot where you can see the pads place the screw driver in the slot between the pad and disc and pull it towards you gently but with force you will now have a gap and the caliper will slid from side to side
6. on the caliper there is black rubber on the top and bottom of it with a bung in them pop the bung on and take the hex key set out size ten i think and unscrew the bolts re move the bolts and the clipper will fall off rest it on top of the disc and the pads will slide out

It would be to hard to tell and show you over the computer.
The best and easiest way for you is to buy a Chilton manual for your car at the autoparts store. The book runs about $20
This book is a do-it-yourself bible. It will show you everything you need to know on how to do maintenance and repair on your vehicle.

Does sound like you need a new master cylinder. On a 2000 you wont need to back bleed. You will just need to follow the instruction and bleed the master and all four points. you will probably need to bleed the ABS block and proportioning valve but only if they have bleeders on them.

The retraction tool all depends on the caliper. My 04 Touareg came with 4 piston Brembo's in the rear and they do not require rotation just compression as in the front which are Brembo 6 piston.
