First thing to do is take a die grinder and match the holes in the pipe and header and make them relatively smooth and round. Then cut a piece of exhaust tubing about 1" long and fit it snuggly into the pipe about 1/2". Tack weld it in there. Now make sure the stub will fit all the way up into the header and the flanges meet. Now all you need to do is buy a commercial gasket (copper ones are very good) or make one from Mr. Gasket white gasket material. The gasket will seal and the stub protects the gasket joint from direct contact with exhaust gasses.
