Trying to repair P-trap ?? under sink! Help!

Hello, my mom's bathroom sink is constantly getting clogging so I decided that today was the day to fix it. I looked underneath the vanity and guess what I see, a mess. I did a little bit of research and realized that whoever installed this p trap was a jerk. Anyways, I removed old "p trap" and realized the drain pipe behind the wall was corroded. Is there any way that I can fix this pipe? Or do I have to remove old plumbing altogether?

Keep in mind, too, you don't have a "ptrap" now. She was probably getting sewer gasses in the bathroom all along. The trap should extend below the outlet so a column of water will keep the gasses on the sewer side. But, you're right, whoever did that was an idiot.
