Daveyblaze, by the wording of your question, it sounds as though you're having trouble "Accessing" the two bolts you refer to, and not that they won't loosen.
And you can very easily remove a Engine/Transmission with the same basic hand tools you've been using. AutoZone or any other major parts store will gladly rent an engine hoist to you for 30 bucks, long enough for you to pluck a engine/tranny.
And it's also easy to use a jack to prop up your tranny. But if you're having trouble gaining access to the bolt holes, this won't help in the least.
And if you pluck the entire engine/transmission, it'll be much easier to get the new trans bolted to the engine. (In the tight space of a Camaro under body, it's sometimes hell getting a trans mated to an engine)
