I think if I didn't have the plate, I would make one. It's just a piece of aluminum, a few holes and hose connectors, pretty straight forward. The only complication there is the welded PCV pipe, but I ended up not using it after all.
Are you not using the little inlet connection that is on end of pipe? What is the ID of the hose you had to use to go around that oil separator connection point?
