The heater core is located on the passengers side of the vehicle inside the air box. Dash removal is necessary to replace the heater core. You should see two rubber lines going into the firewall around the upper corner on the passengers side.

My 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 don't throw me heat only cold air

There is something called a blend door in the heater box. This door is what moves to change from cold air to warm air. The part is 86 dollars online.

The heater blows air, but it is always cold on every setting. What is going on with the heater?

Check coolant level first for being low. IF level ok, possible plugged/restricted heater core. With engine at operating temperature, check hoses under hood going into heater core. They should be close to the same temperature. If one is hot and the other warm/cold, suspect a restriction in the heater core and you will require a back flush to remove the restriction. If both hoses warm/cool, suspect a thermostat issue and the engine will not reach proper operating temp to supply adequate heat.

I need to locate the inlet heater hose on a 2006 Jeep GC 3.7L V6. both hoses seem to go to the same place.

Yes they do appear to go to the same place but it isn't. Water comes out of the engine from one hose and returns to the engine on the other.
Attached link shows how to flush a heater core on a jeep. It doesn't really identify which hose is which but I would guess the the smaller hose comes from the engine and larger one returns it to the engine.
Because the water from the engine is under pressure and the return is under less pressure and larger to allow full flow.

The second link shows the thermostat housing that the other ends of the hoses connect to.

Heater blowing cold air

If the heater hoses are hot, it may be a problem with a blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and thru the vents.

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited, 3.7 L motor. The heater will not blow hot air. The A/C and fan work well. When I turn the temperature dial to hot, there is only cold air coming out. Can you assist me?

Jeeps are notorious for having broken temperature control (Blend Air) doors. A malfunctioning Blend Air Door actuator probably caused it to break. The dash will have to be removed to replacethe door and the door actuator.

Last winter I had the heater core replaced in my 2002 Liberty shortly after having a new raditor put in. Now this winter the heater core is getting clogged. I don't want to keep paying the dealer to unclog...

Core should not become obstructed that fast unless the engine has severe internal rust. You can remove the heater hoses at the engine and flush through the core (in both directions) using a garden hose. Likely though you have a problem with a blend door or actuator which unfortunately requires heater box removal (big job)
Hope you are lucky with that one and it does not need that.
