Damn bleeder screw...Need help!

Hey guys - I power bled my brakes. The back 2 went fine, but when i got to the passenger front the damn screw rounded off, so I did 3 outta 4.
Couple questions I need help on.
Never had that happen before, is the best way to remove it with vise grips or something else?
Can I just bleed the one line or do I have to do all 4 corners again?
And finally, I can someone confirm the pic below is the correct size bleed screw.
07 SCREW 5,4 4x2. Thanks fellas!

10mm - 1.5 overall lengths 30mm

So what did you use to extract the damaged screw? Obviously, with the right part in hand, all that you had to do was remove the damaged screw and replace it. How did you get it out?

yes you can bleed one corner individually, especially given you very recently did the other 3
