If you have access to an arc welder you could lay a large flat washer over the screw head and weld it to the head of the screw, then weld a nut to the washer. That will give way more than enough torque to get those screws out. Excellent reproduction screws are available. A mig welder might work for this, but the arc welder gives a good jolt to help break them loose.
