I have rear right brake calipers that the
piston is stuck but I can't seem to find the
right calipers because of the placement of
the hole where the brake line goes does fit  
for the new one  to tight of a fit

As the park brake is part of the caliper you did try turning the piston clockwise to reset the park brake part of the caliper? It is rare that these stick but it does happen, if you can't locate the right calipers you may have to replace the brake lines to match the calipers, that can be a hassle getting the bends just right but sometimes you have to do some updating to keep the older vehicles up and running.
