its best to replace the oil cooler lines.this should have the lines that run from the radiator to the oil filter housing and when you replace the line you will get both lines as they are made be replaced together.bypassing the line is hard to do takes more time and will leak as you can`t get it to seal properly.
these lines are called engine oil cooler lines and is a common problem.you can only change them in pairs,there is also a gasket or 0 rings seals that should be replaced at the same time were the lines connect to the filter housing.
Inspect where the oil is leaking from the oil cooler line, it's common for the oil to leak from the remote oil cooler line adapter bolt on the engine block. You can remove the two bolts one at a time and place a oil drain plug washer with some RTV silicon to ensure that it will not leak.
The other common place for the oil line to leak is from where the rubber lines mate to the aluminum line from the remote oil filter line adapter. This is also a simple fix but you're going to need a drumlin tool cut off the old compression clamp that was press fit. Cut off the old compression fitting ring, use cation that you only cut off the ring and replace it with a new compression clamp. Make sure you use compression clamps and not a hose clamp.
This is the best way to fix the oil leak from the adapter line to the rubber hose line, to replace the whole line with the new adapter is expensive and i believe your have to disconnect the engine mount to raise the engine to clear enough room to install the new line along the frame.
Good luck and don't use any engine oil stop leak, it will damage your oil pressure relieve valve and that's one extra thing you don't need to replace.
common oil leak on those vehicles is the "quick connects" where the oil lines go into the oil cooler (what i believe you are calling the "doble") replace the o-rings on the quick connects for the lines
