It depends on the calculator.

To enter the variables x or y, look for an ALPHA key. Then find the key that has an x next to it. To enter x, you press ALPHA followed by the relevant key.
On some TI's TI30XII, there is a key marked [x,y, a, b,c]. You cycle through the available variables by pressing the key repeatedly.

However if by the yx key you mean the universal power key sometimes marked as [Y^x] then look for it under the markings [Y^x], [X^y] or [^].

As you might have guessed, knowing the calculator's model number helps us taylor the solution to your question.

I cannot get the textbook answer (online calculators are also the same as textbook answer) using my sharp calculator EL738: Monthly payment for \$184,500 at 6.75% interest semi annually, for 5 year term...

Your result is for the 6.75% interest compounded monthly. The problem states that the interest is compounded semiannually. This makes a difference in the effective interest rate.

A 6.75% APR compounded semiannually gives an effective interest rate of about 6.864%:
Press 2 , 6 . 7 5 2nd >EFF

Converting this to APR gives about 6.657%:
Press 1 2 , 6 . 8 6 4 2nd >APR

If you use 6.657 for the interest rate instead of 6.75 you should get the correct result.

When the calculator is turned on, the display reads 0,00 and then in the below right side there is a letter C. How do I clear this?

If the C indicator is displayed it reminds you that interests are compound interests. It it does not show, interests calculated are simple.
To toggle between compound and simple interests, press the key sequence [STO][EEX].
