just make sure you find a port for the pcv and FPR, it doesn't matter where as long as they get vacuum. the "canister" vacuum line connects the the Canister Purge (CanP) solenoid and then a vacuum line connects from the CanP to the Charcoal Canister.

the PCV valve that sits in a hole in the rear of your lower manifold needs a vacuum hose attached so that it can vent crankcase fumes.

the charcoal canister is only to vent the fuel tank without releasing vapors to the atmosphere. it should run fine without it as long as the tank still has a vent line attached. the Charcoal canister is a big black square box that normally gets attached to the inside of your passenger side front frame rail, visible from the engine compartment. the CanP solenoid is actuated by the ECM during specific driving situations to allow vacuum from the intake to help draw vapors into the char canister.

on my explorer manifold i capped #1. #3 can be used for the EGR Vacuum Regulator solenoid (not directly to the EGR valve) that is located towards the top of the back of your passenger side strut tower. you will also need to find a source for the vacuum line that attaches to the Fuel Pressure Regulator. i don't have EGR so i just used #3 on your diagram for the FPR.

unless you have 2 breathers and no tube between the oil fill tube and the TB, you need the pcv to vent the crankcase. the pcv valve and screen are relatively cheap and available at most autoparts stores. or if you have one already just hook a vacuum hose up to it. my2cents anyway

on a fox body? are you sure you're not thinking of the vacuum reservoir, which is a black sphere?

the smog pump (valve) vacuum lines are actuated by the smog solenoids...sometimes on sometimes off, so they would be a very poor choice for using for the fuel pressure regulator. the empty port on the vacuum tree should work ok, or you could just tee into another vacuum line.
