Yes the front actuator engages the front axle but it can't be the only problem because if your transfer case was still in 2 wheel drive, it would never "drive" your front wheels unless your transfer case was engaged (power through your front driveshaft). Understand? So you can go through the trouble of removing the front actuator and do whatever but your real problem is somewhere upstream.

I wouldnt heat it, there is a lot of plastic components in there. it may not come out if its engaged. I'm not sure if its exactly the same with the push button, but there should be a plug on the transfer case that runs up to the actuator. If you unhook that, the defaul position is "out" on the actuator, give it whirl.

This is correct.
And no you cant just unplug the actuator. It needs power to unlock. You could probably hot wire it and run a lead down from the battery. Looking through my haynes manual, there is a transfer case control module located to the left of the instrument cluster behind the headlight switch. you can try unplugging that and see if the actuator lets go. the manual doesnt say anything during the removal process about being engaged or not, just says to unscrew it.
