You need the sensors of those functions, which you don't have installed. I would go back to the correct part.

Beats me. Don't know what you mean by "tip stuck in it". Maybe a hose connection has broken off somewhere on the engine? Only the PCV allows ventilation and the vacuum system must not suck outside air into it.

Most likely transmission lock loading. This happens often when parked on a hill. What happens is the transmission lock becomes loaded, by the vehicle wanting to roll.
Consider using the parking brake, sometimes helps.

It is bad news - vehicle fuses are slow blow types and in the case of blade type fuses and the ceramic bullet fuses they blow at about double their rating and that means the circuit can be consuming an amount of current that is theoretically an overload for a considerable time before there is trouble and by then it is usually too late - the plastic is melted and brittle and the contacts have welded themselves together.

It isn't always an overload - we had a lot of trouble in the early days of heated rear screens when drivers would switch them on and simply leave them on even though the mist or ice had cleared miles before, unfortunately the fuses and holders simply couldn't take that load indefinitely and once the terminals had become dirty they simply heated up a whole lot quicker...

It is clear that section of the fusebox is useless. The only way a satisfactory repair can be done is by accessing the rear of the fusebox and either swapping the wires from the melted section to a spare section if there is one (it might be necessary to buy some special terminals) or you could fit an inline fuseholder ensuring the wires are extended enough to replace the fuse if necessary.
