BP600. How do I adjust valves?

I'm assuming you mean the Stihl BR600, i've added a copy of the breakdown.
you need to access the top of the valves, they should both have an 8mm nit on them. this is the adjustment nut. you get to top dead centre, turn the flywheel by hand until the arrow on the outer of the face lines up with the top ignition module *****. Stihl tools have a feeler gauge you can buy to set them correctly, as normal feeler gauges are too wide to fit under the rocker arms correctly.

Stihl br 400 problem- spewing oil out the back of motor

I would say it is not an issue with the piston and rings, any oil leaking from the muffler has to be unburnt oil from the fuel/oil mix, if not already you should run it at a 50-1 mix, also make sure the engine is not running too rich on the fuel screws, check the condition of the air filter as a blocked filter will richen the mixture.
