install brakes on 95 monte z34

I am not very mechanically inclined but I try to save a few bucks.
Trying to put pads on my kids Z34. Could not get 2 bolts off calipers. I tried getting the bolts off but couldn't. Also, there were 2 star(???) shape things holding the caliper bracket which would need special wrench to get off. Are the bolts what I should be getting off or the star shape thing ? On other cars I have done has been bolts and allen wrench.
I have no air tools so I will have to go friend's house.

Those start shaped things are "Torx" bolts. You need a torx socket to remove them. I think it's a #55 but I may be wrong. They are generally very tight and require a breaker bar to remove. You only remove those bolts if you are removing the rotors also. You don't have to just to change the pads.
