the problem with leaking oil is that you have to take half of the engine apart!!
been there dude....look change the filter, make sure its attached "snugly"....it shouldnt take long. if it carries on leaking take it in,,,no choice
trust me....but in your case, its pretty simple you can see where its leaking clearly.
just guessing here...its blocked, change the part...lol
to add...what you want to rule out..is if its cracked!!

you dont have to take the engine apart for a valve cover gasket. you're thinking head gasket.
to the op, its the valve cover gasket dude. its leaking down and hitting the exhaust manifold. most all cars need valve cover gaskets at some point.
no big deal.
i like all the advice on the extras though... hahaha
sounds like they work on commission at a shop. change the pcv also. looks like your radiator hose is about to blow, change that too. hahahaah
dude, change your valve cover gasket and be done with it.
if youre gonna change the pcv valve then you might as well change the air filter. prob do the fuel filter if youre gonna go that far.
if you change the upper hose you might as well splurge and do the lower hose too.
hell lets get crazy and do a tranny flush too.
just changee your valve cover gasket and hit the road.
