First try penetrating oil, lots of it and let them soak a good long while.
Next, might try tapping around the pin area with a hammer to try to break the rust bond.
If you still can not remove the pins.
You might try heating the area up to break the rust bond.
In either case above, it will take time and effort.
Trying to free up rusted seized components is a skill.
You can’t muscle your way through it.
Last resort, and your not going to like it, if they are rusted so bad you can not remove them at all.
May have to bite the bullet and get replacements calipers.
