That plug on top is the bleeder bolt for purging air out of the cooling system. If you install a sensor there, it will have to be removed every time the cooling system is serviced.

As long as it’ll make the engine light go off and not make it overheat I’ll be fine with releasing the air every now and then

FYI. The V6 bleeding screw is located where it is because this is the highest point in the motor. As such this makes it the most likely spot for air to accumulate. Soooooooooooooo If you re-locate the ECT sensor to this location this will increase the possibility that the ECT sensor will be in contact with air instead of coolant.

This will make the ECT sensor read low. IMO this may not be such a good idea.

If the broken sensor is the one from your car, then the threaded part is still in the block. I'd get a left hand drill bit and an easy-out to try to pull the broken part out. You may have to drill out the broken part then re-tap the threads. It's a hard job but not impossible (depending on what you'd have to remove to get access, even maybe loosening a motor mount and raising the engine on that side).
