Hose connection or termination?

This hose most certainly should connect to something, have something on the end of it, or should be terminated with a plug. Which is it?

Check air inlet/carb for connection.

Looks to be an old fashion crankcase ventilation into the atmosphere.
Certainly should be either plugged into the air filter box or requires its own filter.

Breather on 2.5 goes to the air intake just prior to the air filter box.

May have been pulled due to overpressure from bad rings/gasket to prevent oil from soaking the air filter and causing the engine to run away. (2.5Td issues)

2.25? Should be a small male port on the air intake elbow.

Yep...2.25 but I don't have the stock air box. Just a small K&N filter directly on top of the carb. With my set up should I plug it or put its own filter on the end?

It will be internally pressurized. Was part of the early smog reduction efforts a seperate filter will probably get oil soaked. I've seen them replumbed back into the intake, plugged or vented to the rear of the vehicle, far be it for me to advise(esp online) to not put it back in the intake.

Here is how mine is plumbed. Not much help possibly due to your set up but just in case you can find some use for it.

I'd think if it normally is connected to the air intake hose, you'd want to replicate that vacuum somehow, or else crankcase pressure might increase and you'll get more oil leaks. This is why PCV is an upgrade over a road draft tube.

A catch can would work as well if you are getting any blowby through the hose from the separator on top of the valve cover..

FYI:
The late SIII has a different & unique PCV system - it is called a fixed-orifice system.
I had the same system on my late SIII Lightweight. Here is some info on it:
