Is it possible to replace the metal frame behind the front bumper cover ?!
Mine looks like it has rivets to hold in place ...

I need to replace it because i can't put back the bolt in place anymore ..

Yes, I seperated mine from the bumper because the metal bumper that came with my new bumper cover was flimsy and not safe, just have to do a lot of work

umm.. just bolted it up with the long bolts from underneath, then the bumper cover just slides over the top and is held on by the side clips,

youd be better off getting a new bumper.

Your bumper will never fit right again unless you get a new bumper.. Maybe time for a bumper upgrade. But yes, it is called the Bumper Rail reinforcement (steel reinforcement part) and the plastic thing that is painted to match your car is called the bumper cover.

Evolution Racewerks sells the rebar that comes with their Comp intercooler kit separately. That's always an option. Talk to Mike Hood about it.
