Question about 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD
Try the Indian way. From outside and also from inside, pump some oil drops from the oil gun into the area of the latch. As it is rusted, the oil will have the desired effect. And while you are doing it keep trying to unlatch the door. With this effort the oil will also go to places where it would not otherwise go.

The usual way to fix a rusted hinge is to use a penetrating fluid like WD40 or LiquidWrench. Then you want to cause some movement to work the fluid in. Vibration with a drift and hammer works. Or i there is any chance of movement, small back and movements on the door may help.
To get at the latch, you can probably take the inner panel off the door, and then get at the mechanism much better.
Heat will also expand and contract metals to break off rust.
But you have to be careful not to cause too much damage to the paint.
Once the panel is off, you should be able to get it to operate enough to open it. And then you can remove the mechanism and really clean it up. You can use NavelJelly then to remove all the rust. But don't let it get on paint.
