No issue setting it on a pallet, just use a 4x4 under the front part of the pan so it will sit level. And no, you can't pull it from the intake manifold. Since the manifold has to come off anyway, I would suggest pulling it while the motor is still in the car, and use one of the alternator mount holes in the front, and one of the bolt-holes in the back of the head on the back.
