I put the hose on the turbo first just barley and then slid it on the nipple on the motor side. Its the biggest pita on a turbo swap just keep at it sooner or later it will go on. Did you put a new piece on there they get brittle really easy over time and cause leaks.

I remember that hose, took me 15-20 mins to work it back on. Just requires your patience

When I swapped my VF in, I just coated the drain nipple with oil and pressed it straight into place.

Defiantly replace it. if you go to a trusted shop they should be able to provide you with a stiffer high quality hose that's easier to get on.

I have done 2 swaps on mine, both times I attached the hose with clamps on the turbo then slid the turbo into place. It helps if you have somebody down below to help guide you and the hose.
