Its the coolant line that keeps the TB warm in the winter time . If you live in a warm climate you can just bypass it ?? . If not ?? I think the fitting is pressed in , dont know if they sell them . You may need another TB . Lew

If the exhaust gases recirculate from the heads through the intakes, to the throttle body, you'll need to plug the exhaust gas port at the lower intake to keep the throttle body from getting too hot.

I believe that the 5.0 and "standard" 5.8 truck have dual bore TB's. the coolant line is there to "cool" the throttle body, the egr valve (very hot) heats up the TB and the coolant is there to keep it from over heating the TB.
if you have deleted or deactivated the EGR, than you can either bypass the lines togetter or cap them off.
If the EGR is still active then maybe you can drill and tapp new hose fittings to the TB, dunno, but I would try that before buying another one.

good luck.
