I have an UVMap and I try to editing that. As we can see below there are couple of faces which are not placed very well.

enter image description here

So I would like to separate those faces in order to place them from here:

To here:

But I can't find the solution to cut edges to separate faces in the UV Editor.

1: In the UV/image Editor select the vertices/faces thet need to be moved and use the Keyboard shortcut key Y to separate them.

2: Move them to their new position.

3 To join them back to the UV's...... select each pair of vertices to be joined then open the Weld/Align menu with the W key and choose Weld.

You can give those two faces an exclusive material & texture slot, then UV unwrap them separately. Move and scale them in the UV editor independently to take the part of the texture you're seeking, and also to match them up with their surrounds.
