So I bought this cheap mx6 to learn how to work on cars and when I finished putting in my axle I did little tugs to make sure its in there but I tugged a bit too hard and pulled instead and stretched it out
Is there any way to fix it or do I gotta replace it

Yes you need to push the bearings back into the cup, you shouldn't have to remove the rubber boot, just apply pressure and turn the axle or cup until you feel it go in a bit then push on it (you have to line the bearings up with the indents in the cup). Always pull the cup not the axle when testing.
