Default Patching a high pressure powersteering line?

The line on my powersteering pump has a bit of a leak. I purchased a new line and went to install it; however, the nut that holds the line at the powersteering rack is completely seized and the nut appears to be starting to round (Looks like someone tried this before and gave up) There is about a cunt hair clearance to get a wrench in there so it's going to a struggle regardless.

My two options:
1. Cut the line where the metal is so I can get a box end wrench on it to hopefully break it free. If it doesn't and rounds out completely I'm super fucked.

2. Cut the rubber line where the leak is and cut a 2-3 inch section of the new line off and use an adapter and hose clamps to complete the line. Is that a smart idea on a high pressure line though?
