ps -ax
Will display a list of running processes. Find the appropriate pid number and then type
kill xxxx (where xxx is pid number)
In dire cases you can type
kill -9 xxx
Last resort is su to root and then type kill -9 xxx

You could also open Configure Your Computer go to the system section, look for Services and restart cups.

You may have to delete the contents of the print queue (somewheres in the /var tree).

The commands you need are lpq and lprm. They're fairly straightforward - just look at their man pages.
