One needs to allow an aluminum head to cool before trying to pull plugs.  Otherwise the spark plug might become galled.  This is where the aluminum sticks to the steel of the spark plug almost like it is welded.  likely it will come out once the head is cold with the threads stuck to the plug.  If so, you can use a heli-coil if you have access to the hole.

If you mean the bolt-like area that socket slides over on the plug broke free from the threaded section, I don't think you have much of a choice other than pulling the head.

If this is your first 22r-e rig, you should be able to have the head off in about 2-3hours depending on how much time you spend labeling/mapping out the parts as you remove them.  Here is a link to a '93 FSM.  If you haven't worked on Toyota's before, never pry anything off.  Toyota's tend to have hidden bolts, so if the part doesn't come off easily, you have likely missed a bolt or two.  Two main ones on the 22re is the bolt that bolts the timing cover to the head(under the pool of oil in front of the cam gear).  The other is a long allen headed bolt that goes through the intake manifold to the head.  It doesn't look like it should, but it does.

If it is a 22re you have a timing chain, might as well and replace the chain and get a new timing chain kit, and not just the plastic guides. 

If you have the 3.0, you should pull both heads, have them both serviced, as well as replace a number of other items.
