will a stock explorer plenum bolt straight up to the lower elderbrock manifold to give the engine a stock look? also will it fit onto the EGR\ throttle body

An Explorer upper won't fit an Edelbrock lower.
The throttle body will bolt onto the Explorer upper. Of course, as I said before, the stock 65 or 70mm t-body will give better performance so you may aswell use the stock t-body.

It's all completely different, port size, shape, arrangement and bolt pattern....I wouldn't say you can't bolt it on if you could.
A std EB-L HO intake will be acceptable but, if you go to a different inspection centre after you've ground off Edelbrock and put one of those stupid plastic covers that some of those cars had you'll probably find it'll pass....they're dumber than dumb.
