comment Bottom Bracket - Drive Side is Stuck, what to do please?
The aluminum has probably fused with the (steel) bottom bracket, if you do ever get it off then it will more than likely have stripped the threads from the frame - this is reparable by reaming out the bottom bracket hole in the frame and inserting a thin steel tube.

comment How to get the tyre back on to the rim easily?
Not sure about that YouTube video though, we don't get weather like that in the UK and there's no way she got the tyre back using levers without pinching the inner tube. 'You can also inflate your tube with your mouth if you don't have a pump' - yeah right!

comment How to get the tyre back on to the rim easily?
could be messy and as @curtismchale says, not good for the braking surface of rim brakes. But soap/washing up liquid could work.

comment How to get the tyre back on to the rim easily?
Very nice clear instructions. I pretty much cover most of those steps but steps #7 and #8 are the ones I needed to know. I just need to remember the washing up liquid when I am out. It will help remove the grease from my hands and make them fluffy soft too :)
