Cant see why you cant get a basin wrench in there - remember the head is 90' the to handle:
Oooooooooooh, I used one of those when we rippped out and installed my mates new bathroom a few years back, neither of us had any experience at all but it turned out OK. That tool was one of the most useful things known to man I do believe.

Argh! I have a leak between my cistern and the bowl when it flushes.
Maybe I'm missing something but you don't need to turn the water off. Tie up the ballcock in the cistern, flush the bog and scoop out the rest with a cup.

If you can't remove or tighten the nut, dry both sides thoroughly then coat liberally inside and out with a well-known epoxy resin. Yes it's s bodge, and yes it will work.
