Program files are binary machine code, they are supposed to be that way (by the way, this "extension-thing" is a Windows thing). If you want to "read" them you have to get the source code for that program.

If it is an ISO file you can just mount it and copy the packages you need.

If you want to modify a program your best option is to get the source code, make your changes and compile it, not to extract the binary and modify that.

There is no solution. If it is not a free program and you only have a trial license you are not allowed to alter the program. If you want changes in the program contact the developers.
