Seat Reupholstery / Alacantara Cleaning

Two quick questions:

The '87 5KCSTQ I bought has tan/dark cream leather sport seats with Alacantara inserts in the seats and door panels.  Of course the leftmost driver's side seat bolster is worn and has some cracks in the leather and is getting a little saggy from ingress/egress.  I'd like to fix that at some point.  Can I remove the bolster and get it refinished?  The rest of the seat is in very good shape.

Also, there are a few marks/greazy-grimy elbow stains on the driver's side alacantara door panel.  Does anyone have any tips/recommendations for cleaning Alacantara?
