I've heard you can sometimes get a rounded hex screw out by putting a piece of thin plastic (like saran wrap) over the tip of the driver. It makes it a little tighter of a fit in the hex socket.

Mine were like this, I just sprayed with them PB blaster, then Covered all the holes on the engine and drilled the head of the screw off.. Once the head of the screw was off, the rest of the screw turned with pliers and I was able to get the screw off
