Im wanting to know is there a way i can repair this/ put a fitting in for this? Anyway else dealt with this ? Please help. I want to avoid having to buy a whole new intake manifold. Its a 2004 yukon denali xl V8 engine. There is a hole where the pcv hose was supposed to go on the nipple. I seen others put a fitting on it.

Try a few junkyards near you. Plenty of LS motors laying around. Should cost anywhere from $50-$100, depending if it's complete (injectors, fuel rail etc)or not. They're not known to crack like Ford intakes.
Where are you located?

Probably cut the stub off flush and thread the hole 1/8 NPT and then screw brass nipple into the manifold. Make sure the nipple is the corret size to fit what ever goes on the nipple.
Yea its just a hole there now

Exactly. You may not be able to get the exact size nipple but you should be able to get close enough and use a band clamp if needed.
