    Where does it stick? What type of tool does it appear to need? Is it stuck on the outside or inside of the tranny?

If you are trying to replace the tube, it is attached by one bolt that holds the transmission to the engine. This bolt is a 9/16 bolt that screws into the bock of the block though the trans housing at the top. You can see the tab on the side of the tube. Remove the bolt. Then give it a twist and pull up. There is a rubber sleeve or an o-ring around the tube that seals the tube. Make sure you have a pan under the trans because you will loose a lot of fluid. Put a little grease on the new one when you replace it and it will go back in easily. If the dip stick itself is stuck you will most likely have to pull the tube out to get it removed. Hope this helps.

Where does the 5/8 heater hose hook up to on a 1972 nova and is it the pressure hose

They are both "pressure" hoses since the pump pushes the coolant through the system when the valve is opened. They will both go on to the heater core. One to the top, the other (return line) to the bottom. The upper one may have a control valve in line with it before it enters the core. The valve is operated by the heater controls and opens/closes to give you heat.
