Is it going to be abandoned or put into service after the new wall is installed?
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Then I would leave it intact and build the wall around it. You can fill the pipe with batt insulation and put a cover on the inside and outside to minimize heat loss and keep critters out of it.

The length is 6.5. The finished wall will be around 5" from foundation (1" xps+ stud +dry wall) so rather building a wall 7" away from foundation i m thinking to cut about 3" from it

If you cut the pipe it is no good to use again. These chimney parts interlock together and cutting it damages that beyond repair
