Easy peasy. Just undo the clamp and attach a spare piece of fuel line or other hose you have handy. You can buy a couple feet if you need it, I use it all the time for stuff so I have some around. Your lines and clamps should be for transmission fluid (it'll say it on the line) as it's a higher pressure requirement than fuel.

My question is I can't get the lines off the fittings though. You think I would be ok cutting a little off the end to get them off the fittings?

They might be gummed up from heat a little. If you can get them twisting with some pressure from pliers without tearing them that should work. Worst case scenario you can cut and splice them back with a double male fitting, but if it were me I would attempt to avoid that. Every fitting is a potential future problem in my eyes.

See if you can release the clamps and then wiggle the line loose at the fitting with pliers.

You think I should try warming them up some first with a lighter or some source of heat

You could maybe try a heat gun if you can't get it without it, but I'd bet you can get it with steady pressure back and forth, then slide it off. Fuel lines get stuck like that too. I've not had to use heat to break a line loose so I can't say it wouldn't help, I just can't say it would.
