Coolant Hose leak - Replacement / tips

Hey guys.

Just by chance i ordered a coolant pressure tester for my fiancÚ car as it was losing some and decided to check mine and saw I have a slow leak from the upper radiator hose where it connects to the engine. Had.no overheating and coolant level has remained fine but it does drip when a bit under pressure. Just wondering if anyone knows:

1) What the part number is for the upper hose on a grande punto 1.4 tjet to ebay source one.

2) Does anyone know what type of antifreeze it takes to.match from the factory spec... Red, orange etc ?

3) Does anyone recommend any other simpler hose clips styles to use as the OEM ones cause me nothing but issues trying to get on and the limited space in engine bay I can see them causing me problems again.

Any tips or things consider with job let.me.know please

Thanks
