SM: ola, hombre!
SM: I talked to some guys on the Interwebs to help you remove my pedal.
SM: yeah yeah, they said no wonder it's difficult to remove the pedals, after my 120km/hr trips to work the fusion is understandable
SM: So anyway listen, these guys said it on the Interwebs, so it must be true.
SM: They said heat it up and apply some troll grease.
SM: OR take it to a bike shop I can trust, who know what they are doing...

Bike on floor (upright), crank arm pointing forward & downward, allen key up/back, allowing it room to swing. This angle will actually use the downward force on the crank to pull & brace via the chain on the freewheel ratchets & stop the crank turning. Hit allen key sharply with a hammer a few times; the shock is usually more successful than just trying to be heavy.
Basically the same deal for the crank.
Before reassembly, apply grease to threads.

Depending on what side the pedal is you can use left or right hand "twist" drill bits. So the hole is drilled in the direction to undo the pedal spindle thread.
