For those that are having trouble removing arrows from foam style or foam filled
targets, after the shot, take a small mallet and tap them in a bit. This will break
the bond to the arrow shaft. Carbon shafts generate heat causing foam in a target
to bond.
The same applies to arrow equipped with broadheads. If the arrow head has passed
through the target, remove the broadhead and then tap the arrow shaft back. One
can do the same with arrows equipped with field points.

My thought on lubing the arrow shaft may make it penetrate deeper?

Twisting an arrow shaft is not a good idea as it puts too much stress on the shaft.
On a broadhead equipped arrow, this can loosen the broadhead, leaving it in the
target to damage another shot arrow.

Wishing you all the best.
Take care.
