If you have a table saw you can cut a piece and then cut a new tongue.

To do this properly you are going to pull some out so that joint isn't so noticeable or you could just leave it and put the new in the frame on an angle.

Default ok

I would make a transition piece at the stairs hallway opening that is perpendicular.. Then take out the pieces at the staircase landing area. Its going to be a pain in the arse to weave the floor anyway.
This is a worse case scenario.
Otherwise you can rip pieces to fit, countersink screws and biscuit join the floor together.

Avoid an unsuitable look with the successful blending of new wood floors with preexisting parts. a hardwood floor can dramatically increase the value of your home, but comparing an existing floor with a new one may pose problems. Thickness, color and layout variations agitate what should be a uniform appearance between two rooms. Measures were taken before, during or after installation of the new floor help depreciate the differences and help create a more seamless look.
