You pull the cranks off a Lambert, using a crank puller the same way as any cotterless crankset. It's been a long time, but I believe that it's the same remover as Campagnolo (now the default standard), and the bolts are usually 14mm. If you don't know how to remove cotterless cranks, search for tutorials and you'll find a number to pick from.
Once you're down to the BB, you might wan to leave it alone if it's in good shape. Make boots you can hold on with the spindle bolts to mask it off while you paint the frame. If you decide to service the BB, search for a tutorial on the Lambert BB. It's a unique design and there are a few iterations, so make sure you find the right tutorial.
