Answers :

Alternator is aluminum, bolt is steel...oxidation from electrolysis happens there easily. Lots of wd40, some light hammering on bolt head and sometimes heat helps (unless you aren't careful and start a fire or melt something you need). Once the bolt moves a little, keep working it in both directions and moving it out further a small amount each time.
Once you have it out, clean it up well and use anti-seize compound on it when putting it back together.
