Plus, wouldn't a huge boost leak mean the vac/boost gauge wouldn't register full pressure?

At this point if I have a leak it's got to be something like a crack in the intake manifold or something.

It's really bizarre since if I keep out of boost the car drives beautifully, like a naturally aspirated 16V Volvo.
No it wouldnt. There is a wastegate. Its purpose in simple terms is to maintain pressure in the intake. If the crappy hose coming off the turbo is leaking Xcfm equal to lets say 2-3psi, the wastegate would remain closed and the pressure would stay the same.
