What engine with what harness in what car is this? I know EJ18's used a different idle air solenoid than the EJ22's so depending on what harness was used the IAC may not be usable. They may have also turned in the throttle stop screw to compensate for the disabled IAC, so the computer may never be seeing the throttle position drop down to closed.
Depending on what parts were combined there may be no fix for that hackery but a complete harness and ECU swap to match the engine. Or just ignore it and tape off the ends of the wires.
I liked the progressive idle air control of the EJ22 for crawling around offroading. The computer would manage the idle to keep it from stalling while rolling along. So if you can hook it up it is nice.
Oh and the port on the top of the block is where the PCV valve is supposed to pull fumes from the crankcase from. It looks like your PCV is hooked to one of the valve cover hoses? Those are both supposed to be fresh air in, then from the block port up to the PCV valve. There is also a T fitting with a vacuum break fresh air line between the PCV valve and the port on the block to keep the PCV valve from sucking too hard on the crankcase.
If you have one valvecover hooked to the PCV and the other vented to filtered air after the MAF sensor that will work but you need to cap off the block port with a cane or chair leg rubber tip cap.
It looks like you did not get a very well or carefully done EJ swap.
