It would help to know what year and model car you have, and if you typed proper sentences.

Yes the MAF must be integrated into the new intake. Chances are its not plugged in properly, you damaged it while taking it apart, or one of your vacuum lines is not plugged inproperly or has a leak

the maf is called the mass air flow sensor because it mesures the air comeing in so at certain revs the engine knows how much fuel to add to hit its target afr, you can ditch it with certain ecu's and only run the MAP as this is geeraly quicker to respond and can cope with a far greater air flow

Sounds like you're thinking of the throttle body, specifically the butterfly valve of the throttlebody.

its funny how people consider caps online as yelling lol

well you might want to take a look at the sensor to see if there is any build up or dirt on the sensor, did you bang it against anything when you installed it, also this is just a thought but the filter you are using may contain oils and it may get onto the sensor
