go to your local gun shop & buy some KROIL
it is expensive, but it is the best thing for breaking things loose. i only use it when PB Blaster doesn't work
a trick to get the rotors off is to take an old drum that fits your bolt pattern, put it on the studs backwards, don't tread the nuts all the way on, leave plenty of space, then grab the sides of the drum at 3 & 9 oclock, then jerk the drum towards you a couple times, using it like a slide hammer

As for the answer about the rotors, take them to who ever you want to get them turned, they will use a micrometer to measure them & give you a couple options
If they say that they are marginal, call the local parts houses & find out who carries
EBC pads & rotors, usually Pep Boys & O'riellys
