Leak on a hose, and smoke, smells like antifreeze

This is usually associated with a leak in the heater core. Only proper solution is to replace the heater core. Suggest getting a service manual from local automotive parts store if you want to do it yourself. Usually lots of hidden screws that the book will give you the correct procedure to follow. Or pay someone else to do the repair. Repair manuals usually run less than $40.
