best way to open up attic crawl space?

I just bought my first home this week. Its a 1950 home and there was an addition added about 20 years ago ( so i was told). Well im trying to open up the little hole they have to get to the old part of house. The walk up attic stairs is now located in the additions walk in closet. Unfortunaltly they only left a 12 inch by 16 inch hole to slide through ( which is impossible for me).Once I enter the old side of the attic the attic drops about another two and a half feet, so i can stand up on that side. So can I remove any of these vertical supports without comprimising the roof? or whats the best way to go by moving one of these supports out of the way? Thanks for the help in advance! I have pics I can email to better understand this problem.
