Sounds like you got a SIM removal tool. Depending on the region, some iPhones still come with one in the box. If you have an unlocked iPhone you can remove the tray and install SIM cards from other wireless carriers into that slot.
As far as removing the case, you haven't identified the brand and type, so there is not enough information.
