all the buttons ive used are two piece..a little metal cap and the bottom piece to the button...the fabric will be a bitch to get onto the buttons unless you have this little machine that squeezes the fabric around them...its hard to explain but the process ive always used is pretty simple..get some heavy nylon string run it about a foot and a half long for doors, thread the button and tie the string...push the string through the door panel with a big needle.."there are actually hooks for this but i take it that you dont have one or access to one"..once you pull it through there are these plastic flat discs you thread through on the back...tie a small knot and pull until you suck the button to the depth you want and then just tie a few more knots...pretty much it...this part can be done at home but i suggest you get the actual buttons made for you somewhere because they are a pain in the ass

I bought a button press when I did my interior...very easy to use...had to get it because it was too expensive to have someone make all my buttons...I look for pics ;)
