From what I am finding that once you figure out how to get in there is a manual hood release inside the driver compartment. Is your owners manual in the car? It will have the info you need to locate hood handle

Oh and use caution opening and closing the doors with dead battery. The windows wont index and might cause an issue opening and closing if they catch on the frame.

charge it thru the cigar lighter socket, any appliance that plugs in socket has the wires to connect. must be always on socket, pc tap, ect

Charge thru cigarette lighter socket? How in the John Brown do you do that?

All I find is the manual release in the driver compartment to open hood. Might want to have someone lightly push down and pull up on hood as you try to release. But be easy.
