that's your crankcase ventilation tube it's used to regulate the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold where they can be burned.

I believe it goes to the underside of your intake boot; you'll see two hoses connected there...one for the idle control valve, and the other goes to the crankcase ventilation hose.

that's the return pipe from the oil seperator, which collects particles then sends oil elements to be burned off in the engine.

Not for me, I need to know the location, not the purpose.

It goes to a canister located under the intake manifold. Why does it matter so much?
