The seat on my BAthtub hot water faucet is stuck and When I used a seat tool it rounded off inside. Any suggestions?

You need to spritz the seat threads with WD-40 and let soak to loosen corrosion.
Then get a small "easy-out", tap it gently, but snuggly, into the seat hole (do NOT damage the threads of the wall fitting), and turn it out counter-clockwise.

"easy-out" (comes in different sizes...pick one that will fit into your seat)
Wrap 1-2 flat turns of teflon tape clockwise only on threads of new seat, and install it snuggly. Don't over-tighten.
Good Luck!
