Typically integral parking brakes are on rear disc braking systems. By activating the parking brake it adjusts the discs on the rear brakes. While the front discs are self adjusting, on the integral systems the rear discs are not self adjusting, thus the need for the integral parking brake system.

First off, you need to take any tension out of the parking brake cable. If it is still siezed up you need to work the parking brake actuator back and forth at the wheel until it frees up. If it is still siezed up hit the brake drum with a large hammer as you pull on on the drum. If it is still seized up take cut the drum off with a torch.
