the only way to fix it is to replace the pipes and donuts. Sometimes the bolts for the flanges also break in the manifold that bolts to the turbo....causing the need for that manifold to be replaced as well....

You dont have to pull the motor, but you do have to pull the turbo. I do them without pulling either, but i did quite a few pulling the turbo before i felt comforatable doing it the way i do it. Pulling the turbo would be the way to go. That pipe is too smooth and hot for any kind of epoxy to hold up to....

Another note, with that pipe leaking, you are losing turbo boost as well since that is before the exhaust gas drives the turbo...less exhaust driving it equils lower boost pressures...
