it depends on the problem. if the pin is locked in and the key will not move it, it will need to be drilled out and a new lock to replace it. if its sticking you need to get at the lock and get the pin lock out with key and remove the locking lock pin and remove the lock and give it a good sock with some oil and clean out the in lock housing.
CFL bulbs are held in place by a friction fit, but it is a very tight fit. Grasp the CFL by the sqaure plastic base and pull firmly away from the socket. You may have to wiggle it a little, but don't try to pull it out by the globe because they are very fragile and break easily. I would imagine the pins would be interchangeable with some other model, depending on the number of tubes and the number of pins. Just take your bulb with you to compare. If you have any specialty electrical supply houses in your town, that would be a great place to look. I'm giving you a link where you can order them if all else fails, but CFLs have become pretty common, so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding one.
I have not experienced the trouble you are suggesting. CFL do product radio interference. There may be a connection. To prove it - remove the CFL.
Everyone is interested in reducing electrical use and CFL is a good choice. For this particuylar installation, you may want to go with a more expensive alternative, LED. Search LED on Google, you will get a lot of leads and you son't believe the choices you will have
