What is the circled part in the picture? I think there is some smoke coming out of it with what it looks like some liquid boiling up with some smell.

EGR tube, goes from the ex mani to the intake mani. There is not liquid in or near there. Could have been a drop of water or coolant. Check around for leaks.

Yeah, that's the EGR supply tube. Could be moisture condensation you are seeing turning into steam as it gets hot. Could be on the outside, or from inside the exhaust. Still, it looks a little black and rusty... you might want to take it out and see if there any holes or black carbon build up on the outside anywhere that would indicate an exhaust leak. Replace if necessary.

Ive seen the heater hoses start to leak sice the cupler is right above the tube.
