Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek
Sometime the steering wheel will get jammed and you need to rotate it hard backward and forward to get it to come loose. You will need to turn the key as you do this. When free the key will turn if that is the problem and push on the brake also they sometime have to be pushed to release the wheel or to start the newer models.

You will have to have the ignition cylinder replaced in the car. The only thing that keeps that ignition from turning is a little tang on the sdie of it. The only way that tang moves is by the tumblers inside the cylinder moving it. They will have a hard time replacing it too as they can't remove the cylinder from the bore until it is in the "run" position. Obviously there are ways to get them out but it usually involves using half the tools of a good tech's toolbox. if it is towed the towtruck driver will have to use dolly wheels or remove the shifter cable at the transmission to get it to move as it will be stuck in park- unless is a standard shift.
I am sorry for the bad news. Get a second opinion from somebody that can put their hands on it , but it sounds like you have a tried all or most of the tricks.

There is a hole under the steering column right near the ignition switch, if the key gets stuck, stick a pen or something in the hole, you will feel the little lever move and you can remove the key.

your tumblers are probably sticking. you might want to try some fine machine or penetrating oil in the cylinder first. but chances are you will have to change the cylinder and that will cure you issues.
