I would not worry too much about too much pressure from the pedal.
If the pistons are really seized and do not move with reasonable effort, then it is probably far better to send them in to be professionally rebuilt.
It's just one caliper up front and it does not seem to want to retract. I am still able to spin the wheel but with some effort. What is the likelihood that it's just the brake line?
