You don't need to change it back to txb. Jade Empire will recognize tga as a valid texture format in the override.

Don't forget that if a TXB file with the same name as your TGA already exists in the override folder the game will use it instead, so in those cases you must move those TXB files out of the override folder as well.

And when you do extract textures, check if they exist in the override folder first before looking in the game data files. The versions in the override folder usually have higher resolution than the ones in the game data files.

As for finding head textures and models those can be quite spread out, some being in the common game data files while some being packed into the modules where they are used. You should be able to find them if you use the search utility listed in the JE modding thread in this forum and use a wildcard search.
