I'd probably call it something like front subframe RH upper leg
some rust repair panels do seem to exist but for the lower legs..I'm thinking that would just need some plate welded over top
some extra info here...looks similar but outer and a few other posts similar

Might be better getting a complete/different front end, that's a bad one. I sold an HR complete front a while back for $200, HGs should be around the same price (Prem front maybe a bit more).
Good luck..

but I'd check carefully over the entire subframe - if the rest seems good my thinking is that section with the rust is a less important structural part compared to the rails and lower legs...and so maybe quite feasible to patch weld a plate/gusset over top. That may be less intrusive and costly esp if you can weld ok. It depends on what you want to do with the rest of the car. If you want to preserve and keep structurally sound versus a high quality restoration. a quick look on gumtree has some people wanting $1500 for one side! This is the crazy pricing again..and I do hope BIJ realised the give away was from 2006!
