form some round aluminum tube into a square, get a transition 3d printed, get a form cnc machined and then press the round tube on to the form to expand it into the square shape you desire, etc.... Many ways to go about it

If you want cheap, light, and strength isn't a super big deal, hit your local home depot or lowes and look for a gutter to drain transition. This will got from a rectangle to 3-4" round.

HVAC ducting is easy to work with and really light. I did something similar but unfortunately never took any pics.

We just went over something similar for brakes (brake and suspension section?) with suggestions for similar.

Some were......
Aircraft Spruce (aircraft parts supplier), look for engine ducting.
McMaster-Carr, industrial supplier, look in HVAC ducting.

Maybe Home Depot, get a small roll of aluminum flashing, some aluminum pop rivets, and "aviation snips" (to cut the flashing) and make your own.

decided to ditch that route, too complicated and besides too many angles

now I want to connect the hose directly to the back of the bumper duct hole, initially I thought about squishing the hose and insert in the duct hole, seal with glue gun
however I need it to be serviceable when I take the bumper off, so the hose has to connect/disconnect

FOllow link in post 8, yes, it's a brake duct by the wheel but still worthwhile info.

Take another piece of it and hold a lighter to it and see how much faith you want to put into it.

Maybe try a big 40oz can? Or one of those jumbo monster energy cans
