You're lucky, mine actually blew apart!

Ford sell replacement nuts with the seal and a small steel o-ring inside for about $15. To salvage yours , you'd need to carefully hacksaw the existing nut off. The alternative is to buy a replace hose assembly.

Should be a plastic washer/Oring that goes between the 2 nuts to force the pipe back and prevent leaks.

What is the Ford part number(s) for this? My local Ford dealer is hopeless at finding parts on their computer and it would help if I could just say "order part number xxxx".
