well, as confusing as this all sounds, I think that what you broke was the EGR (Exhaust Gas Reburn) hard line. Yes it *would* be all crappy inside.

Looking at my 5ME, From the point where the air comes into the throttle body, you have then the Idle Air Bypass screw beside the Crank Vent line, then you should ave 3 small vacuum lines and the coolant de-icer (which runs horizontally across the path of the air) these are above the line of the butterfly itself, which will have the little black box for the TPS on one side and the actuator and recoil spring on the other side.

Is this clear? I can't type and look at the same time, but that's damn close anyway.

from here you have the mount to the primary plenum, and ON TOP of the plenum, *not* part of the T/B , is the EGR return pipe - this is a hard metal line that goes from the top/center of your intake to the rear of the engine into a vacuum bell, yes?

there should be a rubber line also attached to the front side of this which goes forward to the Cold Start Air Bypass (like a choke) which should have another rubber line connected to your intake.

Does this make sense? I can take pictures. HTH

The way you explain it, it seems like bypassing this is fine for you!

I seem to be following you around the board - lol - your troubles are similar to what I've had! Anyway, keep us up on what you come up with , k?

Oh yeah - if you cleaned the area around where the tubed meet, or are supposed to meet, I expect you could use any bonding agent of appropriate strength to make it seal.

Remember that IIRC there should be less than 20PSI and 200deg. F. in your system...
