In a word yes, you can probably get the pulley as a desperate item but it sounds like the bearings have gone. Either replace with new or reconditioned - double check the pipe as it could be leaking fluid from the pump rather then the pipe itself

The belt should be really loose if the tensioner has been held? If its tight then replace the pump with the original and go get the right one!!

The tensioner is spring loaded and requires turning the pulley bolt clockwise to enable removing/replacing belt.
