If your boss gave you a job and you spent the day working on it and found out that it could not be done, would you expect to be paid?
If the plumber was charging you based on a fixed fee for the job, then no he should not be paid, but if he was working by the hour, the answer is a clear yes, he should be paid and if you don't, you may rightly end up with a lien on your home.

I see nothing that would indicate your first plumber needs replaced.

Of course you should pay for a second opinion. Tell the second guy,upfront, the findings of the first.
Of course, if the second guy fixes the problem in short time, you may have reason to ask for your money back from the first guy. But then maybe you should just be really happy that you have found someone that can fix 50 year old plumbing.

I would call a second plumber just because it is worth another minimum fee to be sure that the faucet can't be salvaged. Everyone has different experience and the second guy might have a trick the first one doesn't know about.
Why can't you just replace the faucet? Even in a custom sink you should be able to find something new that can be made to work.
