Default Swapping out header bolts

So my new 2010 SS that I just bought the headers are mounted with bolts. They're pretty rusty and I'm thinking about replacing them. Question, should I attempt to remove them hot engine or cold? None broken yet but you know how that goes. Also thinking I'll put studs with nuts in place of the bolts. Mauling around whether to use deep brass nuts or stainless? What do you guys think?

I have never seen much of a difference removing those bolts whether hot or cold.
