Cannot figure out how to remove water supply line to install new faucet.

So I'm trying to install a new sink/faucet combo and I've run into a little bit of a snag. One of the water valves is threaded for a regular 3/8 to 1/2 inch supply line and I can get that one off no problem. However, the other valve doesn't seem to be threaded at all. See these pictures. From what I can tell from inspecting the shutoff valves, it looks like the weird one has a the water supply line somehow pressed onto the valve. I can't figure out how to get it off and I can't even begin to think of how to attach a new supply line, even if I did manage to get it off.

I would just use the current, old supply lines, but unfortunately they're too short to reach the new faucet where it's positioned. I tried looking online for 1/2 female to 1/2 male extension lines to act as a bridge between the old stuff and the new faucet, but I can't seem to find any. The only thing I could find that was remotely close is 7/8 female to 7/8 male lines for toilets/bidets. I also tried looking for just a 1/2 inch extender to throw on the bottom the faucet in hopes of making it long enough to reach the old water supply, but I can't find anything there either.

Anyone have any ideas of how to proceed from here? Thanks!
