That is throttle body side of intake manifold. And that is sand from west Texas from 3 years ago lol. Pulling the trigger on a catch can tomorrow! O2 sensors too. Kind of thought the same. Labor costs to replace the seals are identical to replacing the valves.The gold is just a coloring of the light - looks like just a spot of clean piston dome area to me.
Needs valve seals most likely and a good valve job.
If you haven't replaced the O2 sensors, they are way overdue IMO.
Catch can will cut down on oil going through the intake BUT you do need to remember to empty it every 1-2000 miles or so - if you forget to then you will send a slug of oil through the intake instead of the constant mist.
What is picture
