comment How do I seal a garden hose against a nipple?
The picture of the 'nipple' you posted is not a barbed hose adaptor. It is a PEX by MIP (male iron pipe thread) adaptor. So if that is what your adaptor is, then that would be your problem.

comment How do I easily separate unglued PVC pipe from joints?
PVC fitting are also tapered which makes it hard to get the pipe all the way on when dry fitting (as well as taking them apart after). In addition, if you get any dirt/grit in the hub of the fitting, it will be that much harder to take apart. If you're having a hard time using just your hands, you an use a hammer to tap on the face of the fitting. Do this lightly and go all around the circumference of the fitting. If you hit too hard the fitting will misalign and get harder to remove.

Did you try to tighten the nut on the top of the valve? Do you know what the pressure is?
