Stuck parking brakes are usually due to dirty/worn cables. Try tapping on the brake backing plates with a hammer. Don't hit them real hard and damage them. Some times this will allow the return springs to back off the brakes. If it works and they stick again next time you use your parking brake you need new cables.

Is the braking system on a 1992 Grand Caravan 3.3L non ABS split front rear or diagonal mine seems to lock the right front and left rear?

It is split front and rear. You have two separate brake issues. I would pull all four wheels and take apart all four brakes inspecting along the way. The left front could have a frozen caliper piston,caliper slide pins or a damaged/blocked brake hose. The right rear wheel cylinder may be frozen or the brake is way out of adjustment.
