I recently managed to break my home button of my iPhone 6 - and didn't realise that iOS 10 requires the home button to upgrade and unlock the phone. I understand I can downgrade to iOS 9.3.5 which would solve my problem until I have a replacement button, however I cannot unlock my phone so that iTunes can give me the option to restore with the iOS 9.3.5ipsw file as it says that it cannot connect to the phone unless it is unlocked. Any ideas???

Do you live close enough to an Apple Store to take it in for a repair? They can check out your iPhone and give you a repair cost, unless you have AppleCare+ that hasn't yet expired, in which case the repair will be free unless it was the result of accidental damage when the repair cost will be $99.00.
