Welcome back! Ok... so, the stud broke free from the torque converter, and now you basically have the torque converter stud stuck to the flex plate, right?
I believe that's the issue if I understand correctly. That happens. If that's the case, you can remove the engine with that stud in the flex plate since it's not attached to the torque converter . Once the engine is removed you can get the stud out with a crescent wrench on the back side of the stud and your impact wrench or ratchet on the nut. I have attached an image of the stud. The arrow shows where it most likely broke free at. You'll see what I mean about using a crescent wrench after the engine is removed
Please let me know if that helps or not. I want to make sure you got the answers you came here for.
