My guess is the wires are for the compressor and pressure switch on a/c system, prevents compressor from being energized if freon pressure is too low.

That hose fitting looks like the fuel tank vent or possibly return line from fuel pump.

================ I believe the phrase is "replacement of the tube".

I'd replace the tube. An auto parts store will have the macthing size.

bend it to fit.

That tube looks like the one that returns fuel from the charcoal cannister. You don't need it unless it's required for emissions, and then you still don't need it to actually work, just hooked up and looking functional.
