Internal screws are actually called, "Set Screws" and external  are called " Square Head Set Screws". The bolts are called " Socket Head Cap Screws"

I have also used the next size torx bit. I always let them soak, have tried to get as much heat on the situation as I can, and I have had luck. Also, you might try an impact style driver.
Just don't get the torx bit hot as it will twist off & you have more issues.

If that fails, I have used Daniel's trick.

They sell screw extractors that work well also. they also sell a extractor for bolts that the heads twist off on.

My solution to this has been keep some thin brass shim stock around. Hammer to around the end of the Allen wrench then pound it into the bolt. The brass will fill in the stripped area and let you get a bite to twist it out.

I've probably had 75% success with this method. Either that or a Dremel to slot it and twist it out with a straight blade screw driver
