It will matter what is wrong with the caliper. If the piston is frozen, you are better off replacing it. I need you do check something for me.
1) Safely lift and support the vehicle so that wheel is off the ground.
2) Try turning the wheel. If it does turn, have a helper apply the brakes and then release them to see if the caliper releases and you can again turn the wheel.
3) If the wheel doesn't turn or doesn't release, loosen the bleeder valve on the caliper and see if the wheel then turns.
Let me know what you find.
Also, if you have some mechanical ability, you should be fine replacing the caliper. I can help you through it.
