yes anywhere there is vac is suspect to a vac leak. ck your fuel trim with a scanner and that will confirm if there are no other vac leaks

yes it could

The gasket under the fuel rail is called the intake manifold gaskets (O-rings). It's very common to have a vacuum leak there. Replace those O-rings and upper plenium also.
the most likely complaint is, runs bad cold and once it warms up to operating engine temp it seems to run better.
