Default Helo asap, I broke something!

Ok was changing the coolant tank to the newer style ones and I wanted to get what looks like a vacuum hose out of my way and started pulling on it to loosen and I broke the plastic line that runs under the manifold. I am trying to fit a hose over it so I can loop it around and make the connection but it's not all that easy. Where does this plastic line go and what does it do. Is there an easier way for me to fix this.
It goes to the top of the driver side valve cover so I don't exactly know what it does.

Sorry the first pic is a little difficult to get with the red square, but at the top right of the red square on the left is the hose going down with the butterfly clip thing on it. The other one is the coolant line to the block and can be ignored.

Upon further investigation, I believe this line and the one on the other valve cover collect oil vapors and then meet up with another line from the PCV valve? At that point somewhere under the manifold, they meet up and tee into this other plastic line that comes up into the intake. Is that correct or is it just the two valve cover gasket lines meet up and tee into the intake and this other PCV line goes into the manifold?
These have something to do with catch cans I guess haha. I will keep looking, but what would be a cheap and easy fix for this? Can I disconnect the two valve cover lines and then either plug them and plug the intake spot? Or connect them via a hose and tee into the intake?

Here's a line that I think they tee into under the manifold:

Damn 45 views and no replies... I just want you all to know that I blocked off the intake part with a bolt and then drove my car and it was ok except for boost. It was kind of sluggish. I eventually went to the hardware store and picked up a 1/2" tee and put some 1/2" line from both valve covers to the middle and tee'd that into the line that went into the intake. I'm 99% sure that the PCV line goes from there to the intake next to the 2 valve covers which tee up and go to the intake. Not connected whatsoever. So I was venting to atmosphere for awhile but hooked it all up and seems to be ok now. What a day! How was your effing Saturday haha.
