    wait, did your brakes not work at all? or did you just lose your power brakes (making it very hard to press the pedal, but you were still able to slow the car)? I haven't worked on that side of the engine, but I know the master cylinder is over there, if a brake line cracked or broke then you'd lose brake fluid and use of your brakes. Can you brake with the car in its current state?

    That looks like the vacuum line to your power brake booster. Power brakes use intake manifold vacuum for the power assist. Your brakes are hard to press because the power assist is gone. And the MASSIVE vacuum leak is causing your rough idle.

    I'd fix it before going anywhere.
