Angry Stripped Caliper Bolt-AM I SCREWED ??

Hello and thank's for your help, I changed my rotors and pads this weekend, when I screwed the lower bolt on the passenger side caliper I somehow stripped the hole. Now I can't tighten this bolt anymore. I noticed the threading on the bolt is a bit rough so I guess I will need to get another one.

My question is what could I do to fix the stripped hole ? Can it be fixed somehow WITHOUT having to replace the whole boot ?

I will probably have a REAL mechanic do the job this time but I want your advice on what can and should be done.
