I've heard of people using compressed air (very carefully) to move pistons. Never tried it, so can't vouch for it being a good idea.

Yes you can do this, but put something between pistons(piece of wood or rubber) to act similar to the rotor and to keep them hitting each other and popping all the way out.

Those are some scary looking calipers. I'd plan to rebuild them no matter what.
