I'm not sure which bolt you're talking about. Does it thread into the bike frame or into the muffler? Unless there's a welded nut that broke loose and is spinning you might be able get it out by putting pressure on the bolt as if you're trying to pull it straight out and turning it with a ratchet at the same time. If it bolts the muffler to the frame, prying between the muffler and the frame while turning the bolt may do the trick.

Ditto above.

Once it's out, re-tap the subframe to the next size, or if the muffler hardware won't allow for a larger fastener, then clearance drill through the sub, use a longer bolt, and put a pair of locknuts on the inside.
