good pair of visegrips, new bleeder valves from a local parts store and deff soak in pb blaster, if you dont want to go through all that and its not leaking bleed it where the brake hose attaches to the caliper the same way you would if it were a bleeder screw

SOURCE: my bleeder valve is stripped
You can try some type of rust breaker and a vise grip to remove the bleeder. If the drums are worn, there will be a lip on the inner inside which will make it difficult to remove. You can try backing out the star key or you might have to crack the drum to take it off. You will need a new bleeder valve and a drum. Also make sure your emergency brake is not on. Good luck!
