Transmission (broken) cooler line fitting extraction

K my work truck is a 1996 dodge van.Has a V6/Auto
Well the tranny lines were rotted and one burst and started spewing fluid at the fitting that goes to the tranny.
Well I try to get on it with a wrench and no go.So I break the line off and put a socket and big ratchet on it and off comes the fitting........threads still in the tranny.
With chevys(only thing I know really)they used just a regular brake line with the stock fitting.But this mopar pain in the *** has these weird fittings that look like acorn lug nuts with the line going into it.They are made outta cast I believe.
Anyways how much you think I'm looking at to have a machine shop extract the broken fitting??

You may have to drill it out and re tap it . You could try and use a easy out but that might just make it tighter . I think the best thing to do is to find out the size of the fitting . Then drill it smaller a re tap it to the original size .
