Important question: How old is the chair?
If it is old enough (pre 1950’s) it is likely hide glue.
In that case you are lucky because you don’t have to remove the old glue. The new will melt and bond to the old and your chair will be repairable again in the future if necessary. Many custom woodworkers still use hide glue for chairs because it can be reversed.
I am a big fan of epoxy and have used gallons and gallons of it but don’t use it on your chair, +1Don.
