Really need to see the model and specific example of what edges you are trying to detach to be able to provide help.

If I detach it, i'll see the normal actually split or look like its split. However If I click a face or soft select nearby to see if its actually split, its not. Im completely lost. It seems like I can only truly split an edge if its a loop like a sphere but if its an edge of a square, I cant.
Below I selected the edges along the uv unwrap and edit mesh > detach.
