I believe the connector you are inquiring about is where your vacuum connections come into play. If you have power brakes this is where the larger line hooks up from your power brake booster. The others will be specific to your engine configuration. Any leaky lines will adversely affect your vehicles performance and idle characteristics.

What controls the temperature gauge on a 1990 ford f150 5.0 engine and where is it located

The temp gauge on the dash displays the information transmitted by the coolant temperature sensor. This sensor is located - on the engine - by the water neck. The water neck is where the top radiator hose comes across and connects to the radiator. This sensor can look like the one here:

Hope this helps.

Making a soundlike a hole i n muffler

Depending on what engine is in your truck, I think that canister does not have a hose connected to it. A common source of that exhaust leak noise is from a broken thermactor check valve in the back of the engine. If it is a Ford V8 look in the back of the engine closest to the firewall. There is a Metal pipe that is bolted to the back of the left & right cylinder head. in the middle of the pipe is a bulblike checkvalve that has a 1" hose that suppose to be connected to the check valve... if the hose is not connected look to see if the top of the check valve has rotted off and the broken piece is still clamped in the inside of the hose. The easiest way to replace the valve if it is broken is to unbolt the tube forn the left & right side of the rear of the cylinder heads and fish the tube out and clamp the tube on a bench vise. Do not distort the tube or you will struggle to bolt it back on.
