How to remove 97 Nissan Pathfinder valve cover

I have a 97 Nissan Pathfinder, on which I am trying to replace the valve gasket. There are two pipes on top of the valve cover (see the red arrows on the photo). What are they? Can I detach them?

Those are fuel feed and return hoses. To detach them, you would first need to release fuel pressure.
