If I understand your situtation, you can access the sewer line easily from the floor below. If that's the case, the easiest way would be to replace a section of pipe, a new closet bend, and a new flange. It would be possible to get the old flange off, but it would be time consuming and not too pleasant with sewer gas coming up into your face. More over, if you screwed up and broke the closet bend, you end up replacing everything anyway. Then, if you were successful in removing the flange, you'd save less than $10 which is about what a coupling, piece of pipe, and closet bend would cost. 'Taint worth it, IMHO!
