Remove the PCV valve from the valve cover and clean is with some solvent, reinstall with new or present hose.. it should click freely when clean..

there is oil under it, the big black spot under the hose is oil
Then clean and check the PCV rubber grommet at the cover, 99% of the time that's the leak, if that hose is leaking your idle would usually be affected, as that will be a vacuum leak source.

You dont need a hose, pull it apart and clean it, reassemble and then see exactly what is leaking, as you drive it.

yes, my idle is very rough, as soon as I start the engine it will go to 2000rpm immediately, and then when it warms up then it goes back to like 1000rpm but keeps fluctuating.

That may a manifestation of a sticking PCV, clean it and see what results, you do not need to go anywhere....may not need a new valve or hose...

You can do a temp repair with electrical tape to cover a split, just clean hose first.

Ahh! yes that is the result of heavy hands... needs to be replaced, or judicious use of emergency epoxy like "JB Weld"

If you go the repair mode, make sure it is implacably clean first...

one off the same engine model would be the best, as a "emergency" to allow you to drive it, plug the hose with a cork, or a bolt and tape so its not sucking air, and clean the cover, find some hose that will push into the hole and run the end into a bottle to catch the oil, mount away from the hot stuff obviously, this will at least allow you to drive it if you need to in an emergency.
