Yes, it does have its own nickname.

Do you have several long extensions, or many short ones? You need about 3 feet of extension to reach through the passenger side wheel well to get to the backwards bolt.

If you have enough extension, run it straight past the oil pressure sensor, between the engine and transmission once you can see it via looking down between rear cylinder head and transmission, you can guide the socket onto the backwards bolt. The scoot back to the wheel well and proceed with removing the bolt.

No, you do not need to remove the rear manifold. From the passenger side wheel well, if you shine a flash light just underneathe the rear manifold, you can see the bolt head.

You need to remove the mount between the diff cover and the block. 3 bolts on the block, 2 bolts on the diff cover. Then it'* easy(er) to get to.

The most you could do with it out is connect a battery to the starter and turn the engine over.

To get it to actually run would require custom fuel lines to your existing ones and a whole bunch of wiring to the harness in the car.
