1. you will need the data sheet for the LCD so you know what the pins do.

2. You will need to drive it with a microprocessor which will need programming.

3. You need a LOT of luck.

You're extremely unlikely to get the thing working as an LCD again.
Playing with them otherwise it up to your imagination.
