Those would be the valve cover bolts. You'll be able to see the studs (or bolts) below the valve cover on that same side if you look right below the bottom corner of the valve cover.

Shoulda bought a Cummins.

No, studs will just insure that your head gaskets wont blow. Having the egr deleted is essential to that as well.

Year, miles?
You need a monitor pronto. Either OBDII interface and Torque Pro for droid or iPhone, or an actual monitor, like an Edge.
Delta is the difference between coolant temp and oil temp, and that needs to be below 15 degrees difference at highway speed, unloaded, 60-65 MPH. That will let you know about the condition of oil cooler. A switch to a ELC diesel coolant should be on your list if you have no records or proof that the Motorcraft Gold from the factory is NOT there.
FICM voltage needs to be at 48, no less than 46 for short periods. Battery voltage is critical as well, if they are old, have them tested. Alternator charging too.
Visual check for the blue spring kit on the fuel bowl to see if that's been done.
10w30 oil, and either the factory Motorcraft, or Racor filter. Prime Guard is the proper length, a really decent Chinese clone, and can work as well if money is tight.
Lot's more to talk about or do, but there is a start for you.

Re: Can someone help me recognize if this is a stud kit of some sort

welcome to the forum!
tupelo, eh? would that be tupelo, mississippi? or tupelo, oklahoma?

but yep, head bolts will be a big bolt head just below the valve covers. studs will be a threaded stud with a nut on it. popular studs have a 12point nut and an allen insert on the end.

its a bit hard for me to see the pic, but it looks like the egr valve is gone with a cap/spool in its place. and that plug might be the egr valve plug. is it a 4-wire?
