Old sink new faucet

I am putting in a new faucet and have an old sink and plumbing. The new sink has pipes that are not long enough to reach the old plumbing. I have to go from a female end to a female end and have no tools like cutter, flare tool or what ever I might need. Are there any kind of flexible hose like the one that came with the sprayer. That looks easy enough to do.

Are there hoses? Yes. Will you be able to use them? Maybe. It will depend upon the angle stops whether you can use hoses or not. Some have an integral pipe which cannot be removed. If you have this type of angle stop, then you'll either have to change out the angle stop to one that will accept a hose OR you'll have to purchase a threaded nipple to connect the existing tube to a hose, which would then connect to the faucet.

If you have a threaded angle stop, then all you need to do is measure the distance from the angle stop to the faucet and purchase a hose of that length. You'll also want to take the old tube with you so that you purchase a hose with the proper connectors on it, as there are about 6 different sizes and threads, depending on the style of angle stop.
