identify this hose

i noticed this on my 2.5l tonight when i was looking around under the hood. it's a hose running from under my air intake box to the engine and the hose is broken. below are three pics, and is this a hose i can get from napa, autozone or any other local parts store? and i don't really know how long it's been busted, would it cause any damage being this way for a long period of time? thanks

It is your warm air hose. It provides warm air to the induction system during cold engine warmup. It helps drivability.
