You can't patch hydraulic hose. The pressures are too great.
You can live without the back brake. Just ride slower and safer than normal.
Hydraulic hose with that bore isnt uncommon. Brake hoses on bikes are all the same size. It's not just for bikes either.
There has GOT TO be a bike shop, spare parts shop or garage which will have some. Any old hose off any old bike will do the job.
Dont forget to use new copper or aluminium sealing washers. If you cant, heat the old ones up in a hot oven or blowtorch them.
