is it a mechanical choke instead, and if it is, is it easy to connect up an electric choke in it's place

That's the heated air intake tube for the automatic choke. {it's not electric} I prefer the automatic choke over the electric ones. Why not just keep that one?

cause i allready bought a street avenger and the stock 2 bbl isn't gonna work with the rpm air gap intake too nicely. I am also removing the hot air riser from the air filter housing

automatic choke is better? what is it?

It draws heated air across a bimetal element to actuate, instead of using electricity.
