--> usually in repair mode, you have to mount the original filesystem 
under e.g. /mnt
The files you have to change are then
/mnt/etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 a.s.o

--> I have no experience with Plesk so I can't help you with this

--> You can remove the SuSEfirewall by De-Installing it with YaST oder 
on the command-line with "rpm -e SuSEfirewall2"

Or you can turn it off in the Init-Scripts with the Runlevel-Editor of 
YaST or on the command-line with "insserv -r SuSEfirewall2" in the 
directory "/etc/init.d"
