I would like to know how do I take out the top cover only in order to access the on/off switch, it seems impossible to find this, after a long search I am loosing hope hahaha.

Hi. To get the button removed you actually will need to follow the steps on this guide through step 18. Unfortunately the process is more complicated than it needs to be but in order to remove the front grip and access the button you will need to follow all the steps before. Look at steps 17 and 18 in detail to see the exact process of removing the button housing.
