Default Leak on engine

Quick review, 05 mustang convertible 106k miles.
I'm using it only for really small trip and I think my fan is not working, another thing I will have to look into.
So today when arriving home, I smelled something I didn't like.
I took a look under the hood and saw some smoke and took some pictures.

Here is where it's located

Here is what it looks like.

Before I take it to the mechanics, does anyone knows what it is and if it would be easy to change. I'm up for challenges but am still a newbie...

Looks like a valve cover gasket to me. Not too bad to change
