What is the name of this part on which the idler wheel is attached? I broke it when I tried to adjust it. Can I replace this to do? If so, where can you order?

@aleksey-abd  This is the extruder kit. You need to replace them together. The metal extruder is much better than the plastic. https://www.creality3dofficial.com/collections/head-extruder/products/creality-mk8-extruder-1

The broken piece is the (plastic) extruder arm that holds the filament transportation wheel (steel).

You can buy this as single replacement piece, buy the whole extruder kit or (much better) buy a metal extruder kit, which is nearly the same price and much much better.
