Yes you can obtain the parts from after market. The Flex Pipe is installed on all cars hows engine is built in transverse. if you accelerate the engine tries to turn against the crankshaft rotation. W/o flex pipe your exhaust will be broken after a couple of minutes. The flex pipe acts like an accordion and eliminates this small "turns".

SOURCE: How long does it take to replace the exhaust flex

Unless you have a lift and a welder, exhaust work is one of those things that is cheaper if you take it to a muffler shop than if you try to do it yourself.

Advance auto and auto zone sell just the flex pipe. You will need to have someone cut the old one out and weld the new one in. costs about $20 for part vs $300 for pipew/catalitic converter attached.

What type of noise do you hear if flex pipe on exhaust goes bad

Like any exhaust leak, it will be noisier. When the car is started, and before the exhaust gets too hot, put your hand along the pipe and feel for exhaust air being pushed out. You don't have to touch it, just feel close for an exhaust leak. If it's leaking, you should feel it.

Muffler leaking

Exhaust system has flexibility. When car is in reverse there is an opposite strain form the motor in relation to the exhaust system. A donut or join is opening and causing exhaust to leak out. Your exhaust also has a flex pipe to absorb movement between the engine and exhaust. This may be damaged from being "over flexed"

Have you checked the flex pipe section under the engine, and the gasket between the manifold and cat/flex pipe section? Those are two places they usually start to leak from either a blown gasket, or the flex section rusts out under the protective covering.
