No need to lift the car, just jack the engine up enough to give you room to work.
No need to remove the crossover pipe, just pry it apart with a screwdriver and slip the new gasket in.
Yes soak the bolts with kroil or liquid wrench overnight. There are 6 bolts in that tight area, I would change both gaskets and all 6 bolts while you are in there. If the bolts are severely rusted break them off and punch out the remaining studs or use a torch.
