How do I re-route the vacuum hoses to top manifold on 1999 Madza Miata

Are you trying to pass a smog inspection, if so by disconnecting the battery you have wiped all programming and now before it will pass you will need to complete a OBD2 drive cycle testing procedure, this takes days to do and requires you drive highway, city and idle engine certain periods of time. There is a engine vacuum hose routing diagram under the hood on the federal emissions certification label,.

Didnt pass smog i replaced catalytic converter,02 ...

Have a code test done (most larger parts stores do that free) In some cases you may need a shop to put a scanner on it to find specific out of range sensors that may not yet be bad enough to set a code.
I'd also check all vacuum lines and line connections as a small leak can alter the system readings. All the sensors on your car work together and the computer reacts to all the information it receives... Bad info in, bad info out...Only good testing will find the problem.
Primary sensors to pay attention to are the coolant temp sender, MAP sensor, throttle position sensor, manifold air temp sender, mass air flow sensor (if you have one) and the egr valve.and pcv valve (if you have them)
Good testing involves using a digital multi-meter and using instructions for that in chilton or haynes manuals. Replacing parts without testing can get really expensive. (but you have already found that out)
Good luck!
