Default Replacing exhaust 'loose flanges'

Hi, my exhaust is in pretty good shape for 214k miles, but the flanges that join the middle and rear box have rusted through. They are a loose type so no way of replacing without removing pipe from silencer so from a parts point of view it appears only option is a full replacement of both boxes.

Car is '95 2.6 V6 Auto..(EU Car)

So I am thinking of cutting the pipe to remove the curved end (see image here - http://flic.kr/p/czcxTY) from both pipes and then use a standard 60mm connector to join them together.

Would this work ok? There is a bend in the pipe so the joining section needs to be fairly short.

I have similar problem at the downpipe to Cat end - though flanges are good, bolts are shot but fused in loose flange - do I need heat to get them out?
