Brake caliper mounting bolts

They are standard thread, and very tight.
If you are facing the bolts from the back of the caliper, you turn counter-clockwise to loosen. If you are facing the caliper from the front you would turn them clockwise. You may need a very large breaker bar and socket to get them loose.

I dont know what bolt to loosen to bleed my brakes.

You need to loosen the Bleeder valve on the brake caliper, it is located on top of the caliper loosen it slightly and you will notice fluid start to run. If you are doing it our self you will need to let each one gravity bleed for about 15 min each. Hope that helps you

Change the brake pads

when you pull the weel, you need to loosen the caliper from the rotor. once they are loosened, pry the caliper off the rotor. remove the old pads. use a caliper tool, you can rent one from an auto parts store or buy one, they are not expensive. use this tool to push the caliper piston back. place new pads, hook the caliper back on the rotor and fasten. replace the wheel. your done. barring any problems, it will be about a 10-15 min per wheel.

I am trying to loosen a caliper bleeder valve.

Try hitting the area around the bleeder with a hammer .. it may help .. bleeders are tough if they don't go after being heated/lubed. You could try loosening the line into the caliper .. that may allow enough of a bleed, banking on the fact that there is still brake fluid in that caliper .. otherwise you may end up replacing that caliper.
