I would say that it could affect power, since it is a leak in the system, but I think more importantly, it could lead to exhaust valve failure......definitely needs addressed.

No, I'm 6'5". So standing on my head would not have worked! My eye catches almost everything that is out of the ordinary. One question though, the end of it looks like it got sheered off or maybe twisted off? I don't know if the mechanics had to take that off when they did the repair or what? But I can just buy another bolt (or set, however they come) and work that one out and replace it and that is end of story right?

There looks like there is enough there, to put a nut on there. I would see if you can find a nut first and thread it on and tighten it down. If that does not work then try to extract the bolt from the head. Becareful not to break the extractor off in the bolt though. If you do, you might as well remove the head to remove the broken extractor and broken bolt.
