They loctite the threads from the factory. I went through this. You'll need to heat it up. A blowtorch would work great, but I didn't have one so I had to sit around and hold a lighter to it for a long time.

Just get an oven mit or something that will allow you to hold the swivel, then heat it up for a while and every now and then try to unscrew the fitting. Eventually the loctite will come loose and you can unscrew it. Just be patient, cause it can take a bit of time.

Correct, it unscrews like regular threads, counter clockwise.

Heat gun if you have it, hair dryer if you don't, boiling water if you are desperate. Should not be using a torch or flame to loosen your loctite, that's a good way to warp parts or damage the finish, and ruin the o-ring inside the fitting.
