How can I repair a small branch partly torn form the main trunk of a 2-foot tall hibiscus? It will leave an 'open wound' on the trunk if I just cut it off.

The branch should be cleanly pruned (cut) from the tree with sterilized shears. Then, let the wound air heal. Do not use sealant. Most often, plants can heal themselves without any problems.
