I would do the 2 wrench trick. Put one on the small but and another on the large nut.

In the first picture it looks like you have the wrench on the part that doesn't turn. That is just to there to hold it in place. The smaller nut turns. Sorry, if you already know this.

Have you dealt with rusty crusty like this :ROFLMAO:, it's on there good!
Soaked it for two days at least in transmission fluid, I heard about doing that before and it didn't work yet

Yes, I was using my crowfoot 19mm with ratchet to apply opposing force (to keep that discontinued piece from turning) and possible kinking because I have no clue what the pipe material is made of! It's not highly corrosive like all the other tubes are, I don't get that at all!!

Then I was using a channel lock pliers to firmly grip the crusty tube fitting and turn counterclockwise as the usual, unless the turn is different for this line? But all the force I could muster was not good enough.

The fsm diagrams for fuel lines looks to be a torque of 30 Nm

Guess the crust wins this time.

Using channel lock pliers may be squeezing the nut onto the pipe and making it harder to turn. Why not use a flare nut wrench on both at the same time?

i will have to look at the new tube again to get a reference on how the nut could even do that !!

at first i tried the flare-nut crowfoot with a ratchet on the main tube while holding the outlet pipe with channel lock pliers, and ended up twisting the line bad fuel leak lol

The fsm instructs this to be torqued to 30 Nm

I would put a good flare nut wrench on both parts with a slight angle between them then just squeeze them together with 2 hands and hope for the best. Just make sure you are turning them the correct way.

do both of the fittings Turn? or does one stay stationary not able to turn?

somebody must've had to replace fuel pump before and needed to undo this part to get the pump bracket out of the tank!

i find it difficult to fathom that Nobody here has removed & replaced a fuel pump and can offer up which one of these fittings turn and which one is stationary, or do they both turn? and how difficult it is to remove without twisting too much if its never been undone before
