Default What seal is this? (w/ pics)

Well, this oil leak has been getting on my nerves for a few weeks now. It burns off oil everytime I shut the car down, so I'm ashamed of my "smelly car" everytime I park. I took these pictures to show where the leaking is coming from. I'm running Castrol GTX high mileage 10w-40, and yes, I know, the fram is coming off very soon. Up near my college, there are no stores that sell purolator filters.

It looks like, from the pictures, some of those lower bolts connecting the two halves are not tightened all the way, I'm going to check that later today. But what seal is this, and how hard is it to replace? Things I'd have to look out for, things I can fix while I'm in there, etc... If I have to pull the crank pulley when I'm in there, I may just replace it with a perrin lightweight....
