What thermometer?
The ECU uses the temperature sensors to help tune the eninge.

Looks like your air charge temp sensor. Yes it affects your idle and your car will run rich with it like that.

So I went to the auto parts store and they told me that it just goes to a Gage and not to a computer so it should run fine but on the Internet it's 50/50 on it doesn't matter too AHH YOU'LL BLOW YOUR ENGINE! wtf

If you have a broken water temp sensor then that's what's causing the sporadic idle....I just fixed mine and it slowed my idle back to normal... Now I just have to drive it for around 50 miles or so to fix the rich condition it left me with while it was broke!

Probably around $500 to buy everything new.
Cheapest, but more difficult is the junkyard conversion.
Plus with used parts you are never sure of the life left in them or the actual condition until they are installed.

People at your parts store are kind of dumb eh?
Ask them if they will back up their claim with some $$ if they are wrong.
An EFI car uses most all of the sensors in tuning the car to run properly for the operating conditions, and temperature is a definite condition that you need to tune for.
Make your own decision about what you want to believe, but you should have it connected and in good working condition.

Did you adjust the idler screw? Sometimes a slight turn of the screw fixes the problem.

Yeah well I kinda drove it around and it idols now but seem too be idling way too low so when I hit the clutch it'll die unless I work the gas. Where's the idle screw? I thought that was only carbs but I also don't know **** lol

Idle screw is right on the throttle cable bracket on throttlebody. If you look under the T.B you'll see where the throttle cable linkage is and there's a screw that holds the linkage in a certain position, kinda like a throttle stop but on the closed end of the throttle body! adjust it in small increments till at the desired idle!
