Just replace the existing shelves with 3/4" plywood. Use the old shelves as templates to cut the new shelves.
I would recommend having shelving board cut to replace the particle board.
Unless you're really wanting to make new wood shelves, you could cover up the existing particle board bottoms with self-adhesive floor tiles. (You may need to inspect and make minor repairs using wood putty on your existing cabinet bottoms to insure the tiles will adhere.) The tiles come in a variety of designs and colors, are inexpensive, easy to cut/install and you get the added bonus of having a protective water-proof cabinet bottom. Good Luck!
What I have done in the past is use a jig saw and cut the shelves from front to back in two spots. Then use a hammer, pry bar to get them out. Since you do have support boards they may just be wedged in place. Try using a hammer and bang under the shelf on one side and see if it pops up.
