the emblems should be fairly easy to remove.

just take fishing line, put it behind the emblem, and shimmy it until the emblem comes off.

it'll either be held down by
1- adhesive ( which you then use goo-off etc to remove the adhesive )
2- holes ( which you then just simply stick the emblem back in)

i would paint them while they're off the car.

Use a black felt pen. Seriously it works! You may have to reapply every year.

I'm pretty sure the emblem is plastic so I would go with a can of Krylon Fusion assuming you've lightly sanded, cleaned, primed, or any other prep work needed before painting.

With a felt pen, it will keep its metallic look through the black. If you sand it and paint it, it's basically just glossy painted plastic.
