Installing a new vanity — connecting the drain pipe from the floor

Hey all,

So I am a complete n00b at home reno, and I am trying to install a new vanity in my newly bought house — circa 1986. It is a fixer upper, so the bathroom is completed gutted. Out of the floor where the vanity/sink should be, there is this aluminum pipe coming from the floor. Pictures are attached.

I want to attach the pipe coming from the sink, which will be preferably PVC, to this aluminum pipe. The problem is, this pipe appears to have been cut and bent, and the hex connector is just not coming off. I took a pipe wrench to it and gave it my all and it just didn't budge.

How should I connect this drain pipe my new sink? Should I just cut under the hex connector and then attach the new pipe somehow? How would I attach the PVC to the aluminum if I were to do that?

Thanks for helping out a complete home renovation n00b!

Edit: Also, I am open to not using PVC if that would be better.
