Buying 4.5 feet of cooler line hose should be all I need correct?
Like I said, you can replace both lines from the trans cooler all the way back to the transmission for right around $50.
There are plenty of people who cut out the section you have pictured and replace it with transmission cooler line and use hose clamps. So that is an option for you as well.
Around here, quality Gates transmission cooler line is $5 a foot, so at four feet, that's $20, plus the costs of hose clamps. By the time I walk out the parts store, it would cost me $30 to repair it that way.
For me it was worth the extra money to repair it using an OE style part and get another 15 years of service out of it.
