Your pcv system is designed to handle normal amounts of internal crankcase pressures. If your rings are a bit worn, you will have higher internal pressure that can and will drive oil out through pcv or sometimes even the dipstick tube. This wear can be detected by doing a cylinder leakdown test (air is blown into each cylinder and the amount of pressure drop is measured) . If leakdown is greater than normal, you will then need to decide if it is worth it to do a ring replacement (major job), drive it as is and perhaps use a heavier oil, or sell it. If your engine uses any other venting for the crankcase, make sure that is not plugged up (I don't remember seeing anything lkie that on your engine though)

I beleive it's simply called the PCV hose. If you go to the auto parts store, the hose may come pre-formed or they will be able to supply you with the correct diameter hose. I would take the old hose with you for a match up.

You have the wrong type hose on the pcv valvle. It isn't vacuum hose.
