I believe it can be fixed by cutting out the rusted part and welding in a new one. If you had noticed it sooner, then there could be a chance to save it by grinding the rust down and repainting that part, but here it is already too late.

Great. Will do that when I get my first pay. Got a job so car should be getting the love it deserves. :) How long would the weld last, you reckon?

If you ensure it's back to healthy metal, zinc oxide paint then lots of waxoyl there's no reason it won't last forever. Just keep up with rust prevention.
