Do I need thread sealant ie tape or other when attaching nitto fitting to outlet tap in order to seal the thread and prevent air leak?

One should always use sealant when making connections on any pipe/fitting with pressure (gas or liquid) inside. Teflon tape is a good all-round sealer--be sure to wind it around CW so that the outside fitting is trying to tighten the tape. Good luck!

How do I remove the Inlet and Outlet PVC pipes attached to the Volute? They may be sealed with a sealant or glue and am not sure if I need to remove the Volute bolts first.

You just have to cut the pipes in a place where you can glue them back together with a coupeling. If you overheated the pump though you may have warped the pipes and will need to go back far enough to get to good pipe and replace it all the way up to the pump. They just screw into the pump and you can seal the new ones with silicone or teflon stick or tape. Don't use pipe dope as it is not good for plastic.

Impeller does not spin freely

Pop off the half dollar sized cap at the back of the motor and use an adjustable wrench to hold the back of the shaft. They make a tool for this but with a little innovation an adjustable will do the job fine. When puting the impeller back don't tighten it more than hand tight and don't bump the motor on to seat it, this will overtighten it. You may have crossthreaded the impeller and will need to tap it out or replace it.
