What is this part called?

2004 Ford Taurus SES 3.0 Vulcan Engine. I have a few vacuum leaks and this is one of the culprits, but I cannot find anything about it. Also what is the hose called that feeds from this part to the PCV valve? Thanks for the enlightenment.

I think that's your EGR valve.
A few people have had issues with a little too much hot exhaust gas coming through and melting the intake manifold at that spot.

Not EGR valve, it is just the connector for the PCV valve plastic line. Not sure of what it is called.
