Removing waste plug from tub drain

I'm looking at replacing a drain assembly for a shower/tub. I've heard the waste plug for the drain is particularly hard to remove. What is that special tool they use to remove it? And how likely is the waste plug to be frozen, needing the saws all solution?

Also the P trap probably needs replacing. How tough is it to get off that big iron pipe and should I just use pipe dope on the threads?

Removing waste plug from tub drain

These work if the cross in the bottom of the drain doesn't break out.
When I replace the traps I cut of the galv. pipe downstream from the trap and adapt to plastic.
