When fitting new rear brake pads to a 2004 Mazda 323, how do I move the pistons back into the cylinders to accomodate the new pads?

Applying pressure will make the piston go back in but you can kick and release the brake before the job is done , use a wire band to run over the piston to hold it tight so that it does not move off, the pads can be pushed into with the wire holding the piston till in place when it can be taken off.

Mazda 6 2006, rear disc brakes. In trying to replace the pads I could not retract the piston w/ either channel locks or c-clamp. Is there some trick to this? Piston does not seem to be bound as it actuates...

You need to twist the piston as you retract it. I use channel locks to twist and a c-clamp. be careful not to grab nor tear the piston boot.

The Mazda B-Series and Ford Ranger are essentially the same after 1994. Mazda motors are made by Mazda. The seating is lower but they slide back far enough by 6'2" brother has plenty of room.
Another neat fact is:
the B-series is "non-interference", meaning that breakage of its timing belt does not result in damage to valves or pistons, because the opening of the valves, the depth of the combustion chamber and (in some variants) the shaping of the piston crown allow sufficient clearance for the open valves in any possible piston position

Dome or Dish Pistons for Mazda FE3N 2L

The dome pistons will provide higher compression than the dished. the domed ones should have an eyebrow cut out for the valves. I believe you would be happiest going with the domes. you might run into spark knock with the increased compression
