Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

On the pushrod there is a metal clip that first needs to be removed and then the rod will slide off the stud on the pedal. There is a plastic bushing that may fall out, be sure to catch and save it.

The brake booster does not need to be removed but you can do so if you feel you are unable to remove the master cylinder from the firewall with it there. I see that you haven't disconnected the pushrod yet and haven't tried to remove it, you should find that once everything is disconnected that you won't have a problem getting it out.
