Remove the plug on the back of the rear caliper and adjust the manual adjust screw (either a 4mm or 5mm allen). Make sure that it isn't adjusted too tight.

Where is the handbrake cable adjuster on a 1998 'R' reg Vauxhall Vectra?

If it has rear drum brakes, it's under the car, where the handbrake cable emerges from inside the car. If it has rear disk brakes, there is addition adjustment inside the rear disks on the handbrake shoe mechanism. This adjustment should be carried out before attempting to adjust the cable.

What component of the brake system provide a means to adjust the brakes to compensate for the wear of the brakes linings?

Disk brakes adjust themselves as they wear. Drum brakes have an automatic adjustment built into the brake system. When you back up and stop they automatically adjust themselves. If you remove the drum you will see the adjustment mechanism.
