I don't think you want to block off the stock one. Use the stock oil out and oil in lines and plumb them to the aftermarket cooler. The will be the cleanest, most reliable, easiest, and probably the best solution.

not a clue, but you can still use the stock fittings if you cut them off the old lines.

i would just leave the stock one alone and pipe the new one before the turbo. i think it opens at 210*F.

so just take the line to the turbo and put it to the cooler and then from the cooler to the turbo.
