Brakes problem
1993 Chevy Corsica 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

My son is trying to do the brakes for me and is having problems removing the nut that attaches the brake hose to the brake line. This is the first time that this has been replaced since I have owned the car which is about three years. He said that there is nothing to grab onto. I am wondering if you have some tip to give him as I can't afford to take the car into a professional to have it done. He replaced the rotors and discs so he does have some skills. And do the brakes have to be bled after replacing the discs and pads and rotors and shoes and drums and one cylinder?
Do you

Where the flex line attaches to metal line it is held in a bracket. The flex line has two flat spots where a wrench will hold. Then need a line wrench for metal line and some WD 40. Hold a break loose. And yes system will need to be bleed.
