You will have to replace the heater core, Only one thing other than that, if there is enough of the nipple sticking out you may be able to clamp the hose onto the stub.

The nipple on the heater core that connact the

Unfortunately the heater core must be replaced because the nipple is soldered to the heater core and access to the core for resoldering is not possible unless the heater core is remove and so if you go to that kind of trouble you should just replace the core with a new one rather than doing the repair and risking a future leak after reinstalling.
