I get pulsation when coming to a moderate stop. Would like to get the front rotors turned, but have problem getting the rotor off. Got the caliper off ok, what's next?

I wouldn't waste my time turning those rotors. First off, you would have to measure to see if you even have enough left to completely clean them up. The problem you have then is that once these rotors are resurfaced, you have less metal for heat dispersant and they distort again even faster. The only way to resolve this is replacing the rotors and they start being a little more gentle on the brake pedal to avoid it in the future.

The rotor should just slide off but may be corroded around the hub area. Spray it with some weasel piss (penetrating oil) and then knock them off with a hammer.

thx for the advice. can the pulsation be caused by a faulty sensor for the ABS?

It depends what it feels like. An ABS activation feels quite different from a brake pulsation but it's possible.
