Where do hoses go, 2 PVCs?

Attached is a picture of the engine, a 98, and how the hoses were connected. On the left, the screwdriver enters an empty hole in the valve cover. Is this for a 2nd PVC valve?
The red arrow points to the line going to the PVC valve on the driver's side of the engine.
The yellow arrow on the right, with the tool stuck in the throttle body, has a 90-degree elbow but doesn't connect anywhere. Where does this go?

I check pictures of engine bays when I see them to figure out hose connections. The only one I think is right is the PVC connection. Do connections vary by year? Are there 2 PVC valves?
I'm lost.

Where is the blue line going, back of the throttle body? Red makes sense, that's there already.

DIsregard my previous pics. Lets try this way.

This would be the OEM line. Unsure if Dorman or anyone else reproduces it. Part number F6ZZ-6C324-A for 1996-2002 Mustangs.


That line installs here between your yellow arrows. Screwdriver to pliers.

if I recall correctly the passenger side goes to the intake tube that goes from the throttle body to the airbox or CAI. the driver's side goes to the pcv.
