Question
What are the stuck pipe parting means?

Answer
There are several methods available including; assisted back-off devices, chemical cutters, mechanical cutters, explosives, sand jetting cutters and probably a few more that I can't think of right now.  The depth, well inclination and complexity of your operation can be used to determine which method will provide the greatest chances for success. You should also talk to a technical sales representative at your local downhole tool company for recommendations and case histories in your area.
