When pounding those pins you need solid support on the back side of the crank, or all the force will go directly into the BB bearings. You should put an old nut on the pin and hammer that rather than the end of the pin, but it may be too late now. Try some penetrating oil. When installing new pins, hammer it in; dont use the nut to pull it in. Maybe you will just have to let the LBS take it apart. I suggest you get square taper spindle and matching cranks, rather than trying to put this lot together again.
