Hard to say what the auto parts stores stock these days. It is a common item if you ask for it by gage size. Maybe find it in the "Help" section. They aren't very expensive.
I have a used one if you can't find one anywhere. Can drop it in an envelope and mail it off during the week.

Offer it still open if you come up hurting. These are "junk" on late 70s and early 80s harnesses.

Fusable links should be 2 wire sizes smaller than the wire they protect. Each wire size is 2. Therefore to protect a 10ga wire you would use a 14ga fusable link. 14ga wire is protected by 18ga fusable link etc.

Only if they are burnt open. A "link" is nothing more than a piece of wire. Your broken link has a small, maybe 5 inch piece of soft wire on it. That's the actual link. These can be pulled out of late model Cutlasses and Camaros all day long.
