    it will move a bit as its a push fit.
    I dont think the smell will be coming from there....more likely the pcv valve (positive crankcase ventilation) hose if it isnt secured.

    No idea where it is on your engine.

    Best place to find it is to look at the air box & trace a pipe back to the engine cylinder head.

    They sometimes have a box inline or as part of the engine connection & sometimes this fills with oil & vents out into the atmosphere.

    Sometimes simply removing & flushing clean is enough
