Default Brake Booster or broken vacuum line Problem, on 94 Accord

Hi there, please bear with me with this problem. I took my car around to my friends house because the brake lights wouldnt turn off. He rummaged around under the dash and told me I was missing the Brake pedal stop pad (little rubber thingy that hits the brake switch). No problem I thought, only costs about $5.

However, as I was driving away from my friends house I heard a hissing noise from under the dash and the brake pedal was very firm.The hissing noise only occurs when my foot is OFF the brake pedal (I had to use all my weight to stop the car). I took it the the mechanic and he said I needed a new Brake booster, total cost $575!

My question is this, could my friend have dislodged something under the dash? Is it a booster problem or a Broken vacuum line? and How should I proceed to fix it in either case?

thanks very much! any help would be appreciated!
