They could refuse as you say, but that would probably cause a constitutional crisis. One of the many reasons that people voted leave was a deep seated unease across the country that Parliament is not really in control of the country.  ;)

It wouldn't cause any constitutional crisis, because Parliament is sovereign and is free to do anything it likes. Always, no exceptions. It might result in us getting thrown out of the EU, or any other treaties we have voluntarily entered into, if parliament does something that breaches the rules of those treaties.

The will of parliament always overrides what anyone else, including the EU, want - within the jurisdiction of the UK. But when dealing with other sovereign entities you either obey the agreed rules,  leave the treaty, or send the gunboats in. Cherry picking the bits of the treaty you like and discarding the bits you don't like is unlikely to be acceptable to the other parties to the treaty.

Yep.....I can see problems with this.
