Need some serious help! ASAP

I'm currently installing a 2.1L Kenne Bell supercharger kit on my car and I'm running into a few issues. Any help with any of this would be nice, please indicate what question your answer pertains. Thanks in advance.
1. What bolt size I use in my harmonic balancer puller kit for that crank pulley in the front?
2. Does anyone know what my pcv tube should look like it, I may have lost it and didn't know it gets changed with the supercharger or not. (Pictures if possible)
3. What options do I have at intake because my old aftermarket one doesn't work and the one in the kit doesn't seem to come with a complete one?
4. The kit came with a very big air filter, is there any options on getting that in the fender without removal of the bumper (If anyone remembers the struggle I had with that this last summer)
5. How does the throttle and cruise control cable connect to the throttle body? Every way I tried hasn't worked or stayed. (Pictures or video appreciated)
6. A spout on the intercooler is a little mangled, is there any ways to fix that ?
7. To be continued because this has been giving me endless issues.

Did you buy the compete kit from a reputable manufacturer?

Yes, it was a guy my dad knew of that did a lot of work with the 4.6L 2v engines

Return anything broke for new parts.

And tbth... if I were you I'd take it to an installer if you had trouble taking a bumper off or hooking up a throttle cable.

If I sound like I'm being an *** then I'm sorry. If you still want to press forward then get the broke parts replaced and then use the Google. Pretty much every question you asked you can find on a google image search

Sadly don't have time to deal with that because I need the car running in like 8 days so I can get back to school. Also, bumper can come off but got damaged by an A**hole. I have done a whole brake and front suspension swap, audio job, I know how to do many things and my dad is more experienced, just asking some people on here while I also look at google.

Can't really help with the first 4.

The throttle cable pops onto a ball on the throttle lever if I recollect. You need to use a bit of force sometimes to get it to pop on.

If you need to straighten out the inlet/outlet of the intercooler, you can try using a tail pipe expander of the appropriate size. They do just what the name implies. It fits inside the pipe and expands to straighten or enlarge it.

What is it that you are trying to do with the crankshaft/ balancer bolt?

^That's the cruise cable. The throttle cable attaches like every other throttle cable ever, it can only go one way. Again, between this and the other post asking about PVC routing... take it to a shop dude.

You're right Scotty. I just went out and looked. Lol

But it's not like every throttle cable ever... My truck's cable attaches exactly as I described.

I really think that we can walk Alex through at least some of his troubles. I think that it would be helpful if he posted some pictures to help describe the various problems he is having.

I had three weeks, but had to wait for some special parts from Kenne Bell which took about half of the time because it had to be shipped from Cali to Indiana during Christmas time
