Hi
My yahoo email account has been hacked several times over the years and this is the reason why I stopped using it. However, I now need to recover some old emails for a case. When I tried to log in, the security prompted me to choose one of the two options either having codes sent to recovery email or phone number. Problem is the recovery email is NOT mine and neither is the phone number.

Hello, I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully I can help you. Have a look in this article produced by CCM giving you all of the possible solutions on how to recover a potentially hacked yahoo account.

Unfortunately, the article is exhaustive, containing all the known solutions.

A final option would be to contact yahoo support directly.
