Hello ColdBreeze, sorry to hear of your cycling woes. OK a bit more information I will assume a few things here. how old is your bike?what kind of bike? Moutain, Road, Singlespeed? type of crank Shimano, SR, Sugino?
OK I will asume your bike is midlevel say 4 years old. you have the bolts or nuts off that hold the cranks on and you can see the square bottom bracket spindle right? at this point you need a crank puller to take the cranks off that spindle.
as for your pedals they are likely on very tight but you should be able to remove them, a pedal wrench is a great help here more leverage, by turning them to the rear of the bike. doesn't matter which side they both turn to the back to come off
checkout the Park tool website. they have lots of great instructional videos http://www.parktool.com/
PS I get alot of greif for saying this here but you may be better off taking it to the shop. yes you actually have to pay them to do but they have the tools and knowledge and you can relax and have a Cappicuino while they
deal with the aggrivation LOL
that is why my car goes to the shop. I could do it, but they have the lift and the fancy tools..
