Is there a way to replace just the hose without removing everything else to get down in there? I also need to find a place to order the parts I need, because there is no way I am paying almost $500 to have someone else do the job.
You are correct, that is the PCV valve. If it is split your loosing already metered air after the MAF which could be playing into your bad gas mileage.

You have to remove the intake manifold to do any work on the valve or hose. I've done it twice by myself in less than 4 hours.

Tousely Ford Parts is the place to get OEM parts.
