Default Tips when soldering U6960/TPS62180

I am trying to fix my macbook.

Can you give me some tips when replacing the U6960 chip.
What Hotair temp and fan speed do you use?

How long do you usually wait before you can remove a chip? Ive been watching repair videos and they can easily remove a chip after a few seconds but I've been heating the part on a test board for almost a minute and it wont budge.

Does a really good flux help in melting the solder? I am not sure if my amtech flux is fake that is why its taking a long time.

The flux is also being blown away from the component I want to remove which then leaves it looking dry, does that mean I have a very strong air?

Which is better smaller or bigger hotair nozzle?

Sorry If I have a lot of questions, I just want to know what I am doing wrong.
