Yes that is a firewall crack. Just welding it won't work because it makes the metal brittle, and it will crack again. To prevent it from going any further, drill 1/4" holes at the ends of any points (it looks like you have 3 on that crack, 2 on the left side and one on the right), then weld across the crack, and finally plug weld the holes you drilled.
