Having said that, how can a ccv system that's badly installed merely with weak vacuum lines, and how can a bad throttle body gasket, lead to the overconsumption of oil out through the tailpipe?

All that should happen is (a) crankcase gases are not being evacuated (b) unmetered air is getting into the engine. This should lead to bad running, poorer economy, and engine oil that gets denatured more quickly, but not the rapid loss of engine oil itself.

Unless someone corrects me here, I don't think you've found the problem...
