Question Rocker panel body mounting studs

Ok, in trying to treat the lower dog leg rust I have to take the rocker panel moldings off. But when i tried to lossen one with a 10mm deep socket it busted off in two turns. Got Liquid Wrench soaking them now, but is there any way to replace the one I snaped off!

No easy fix for the broken stud, but a little heat makes those plastic nuts spin right off

They are plastic so a torch will not work. You talking about a hair dryer, etc??
