Looks like it may be just a Parge coat on concrete block.
Google it.

What are we actually looking at here? Base of wall? Junction of wall with roof? A wider-angle pic as well would help.

Looks like a 4in CMU there to catch the brick on top of it. Somebody probably applied a thin layer of stucco on it which was installed wrong, too thin thats why it cracked off.

Repair... Stucco patch kit, Paint accordingly? GL.

We are actually looking at the base of wall. The red color in the top part of the photo is from the exterior brick.

The "QUIKRETE Stucco Repair 296ml" fills and seals cracks in stucco walls up to 1/2". Is that the right stuff? Do I buy more than one bottle for my application?

One bottle should do it. 2 to be safe right? really the entire side needs to come off and installed properly. Your patch wont last as long as if you were too replace the entire area.
