Manifold problems

My dad's car has a suspected head gasket problem, and while trying to get the head off, we are having some difficulties getting to two bolts holding the inlet manifold on, is there a special tool available for getting to these hard to get bolts?
Also what is the best head gasket for replacing the original?

Any help would be appreciated
