whats the worst that could happen if the egr port were plugged up and the egr valve left electronically hooked up? would the car throw a bunch of codes?

It should throw an EGR code and have some drivability issues.

It should have gaskets, preferably stock metal gaskets.
Well, the cracks are unfortunate, they will have to be welded. Or the header replaced.
