What is this part?

These hoses are located next (or leading into?) to the transmission.

There is some fluid around the fitting ~ how serious is this problem

Is it connected to a transmission cooler?

That's probably it. These hoses are attached forward of the Engine / Radiator (which face backwards) & closer to the Transmission.

The seals have failed in the fittings and need to be replaced is what it looks like to me. Can be easily replace if you are semi mechanically inclined or better. Find a hydraulic hose repair shop in your area. You must remove the hoses from the trans and radiator cooler and take them with you. They will make up new hydraulic hoses for you with new fitting attached. While your at it I would inspect all of your hydraulic hoses and their fittings. The rubber starts to break down with age. I had a friend that had a hydraulic line rupture and it started a fire in the engine compartment. Their rig survived and the insurance paid the claim but it could have gone really bad.
