i wear a men's "hair system" (wig) , everyday i press the font edge onto my skin very hard so there are no bumps in lace, for about five minutes. over time, would this make the bone remodel backwards where i am pressing?

No: bone remodeling will not occur

In theory, "remodeling" of bone in response to sustained force could occur over time, but the amount of force required and the length of time taken are thousands of times greater than what you describe.

No.: You have grown beyond the age where the bone is growing and modeling. Pressure like you are exerting will now not change the shape of your skull.

Ok: This type thing should not cause bone remodeling. See a primary care dermatology physician in person for a specific evaluation
