I'm having trouble finding out what exactly the part number is for the seat adjuster, or what It's even called on the parts number list.

I'm looking here: http://rivperformance.editboard.com/t7618-faq-the-holy-grail-of-riviera-part-numbers-diagrams#118520

I can almost guarantee you're going to need to hit a junkyard or eBay for the switch. There are a few on eBay right now but they're a bit pricey. A junkyard might give them to you for next to nothing.

Now I'm faced with the problem that if I do find a switch, how do I install it? I'm a small person, but there's no way my hand and arm can fit underneath the seat to do anything. I can't move the seat and take it out of the car like I originally planned so that I could clean it.

The switch actually comes out of the side of the seat. There should be 2 screws on the plastic panel around the switches. Then it all just pulls out. I hope we're talking about the same thing here....

That's correct as far as I can tell. Now, assuming I can find a seat adjuster at the junkyard, how do I go about getting the seat moved up so I can access the two bolts at the rear of the seat? I think I may be able to get to one right now, but there's not a chance I can get the bolt closest to the driver door.

You can try hotwiring the seat motor.
