Good thinking on cutting the cable. I assume you knew that the pedal itself was stuck and not stuck somewhere else. Now I guess I would see about pulling out the assembly to look at it closer and determine what is wrong. You probably have lock on the rachet assembly that is sticking and won't release. Have you tried a rust remover and lubricant to let it set on the assembly for a few hours. Then tap the assembly with a hammer softly and see if it lets go. Try this while still in the car before pulling it out. Because if you can't loosen it then you car going to have replace it.
Kind of mixed up there but see about fixing in place then pull it and work on it or replace it. Good luck!
