Have you tried heating the chain adjuster bolt before unscrewing it ?
Apply some heat to the aluminum part so that it will expand, giggle the bolt with a wrench to break it loose (careful no to snap it).
Depends on the gearing, the way I do it is to move the rear wheel as far forward as the adjustment will allow, then wrap the chain around both sprokets, conecting at the rear sproket. then see how many full links you need to cut. If you do it yourself buy a chain cutting tool. Or just bring the bike to the shop where you bought the chain, and they will cut it.
Not if you keep it to around 350 F, takes about a minute with a torch or heat gun.
