Basement leak - elbow for return?

So first the question - is this something relatively easy for me to fix on my own? That is, could I do it in a day and with a very low chance of destroying things.

My other post dealt with a leaking vent from a baseboard radiators. Replaced those with some Hoffman 508 disc type vents. They seem to be working well enough.

But now I have a leak in the basement. Elbow of the return from the same set of radiators (elbow is off the end of the pipe that Is feeding steam (hopefully I’m getting some of this right)). Pictures hopefully help too.

Plan for the weekend was to skim the boiler due to water jumping in the sight glass but now I guess it’s this too.
