RE: going to upgrade some caps, maybe some advice needed

You have to add fresh solder to melt old solder. Sometimes tinning, wiping and then tinning again will get it done, sometimes you have to touch the fresh solder to the old. Get a Solder Sucker, bulb or plunger. I don't have enough hands to use the bulb type.

I use this one, good enough for occasional work

Quality solder wick is also necessary for boards and pulling apart point-to-point cleanly. You want NTE No Clean the only one I've found absolutely reliable. Use it holding the solder to it as though you were soldering it to the part or board and pulling/rubbing the wick across the part.
