That kind of part ya just have to practice with a little until ya get the right amount of heat and know how to remove it properly without burning up the board and/or lifting up the trace it's soldered to.

the liquid solder touching the hot iron helps to transfer the heat from the iron to the pad more efficiently
easiest way to take off the FETs is with a hot air gun, but you risk overheating the board, it's best if you have one with a very small nozzle that will only heat up the fet
otherwise, add a small amount of solder to the two pins and the back tab, and alternate heating both sides until it comes loose (melt the two pins then quickly heat up the tab, go back and forth)
