I have read on another forum that it's a good idea to put a heater hose nipple in the drivers side head as well as the passenger side and join them with a pipe. Fitting a 'T' piece will allow the heater to be connected again. Has anyone on here done this? Does it improve cooling to number 7 cylinder?

Wakey- it helps eliminate a "hotspot" near #7. Is it required? No-but "cooler is more gooder"....to a point. If I owned a Pontiac engine vehicle, I would do it.
