2.0l sohc gasket kit. Help identifying o-rings.

I'm rebuilding a 2002 focus 2.0l sohc engine that dropped a valve seat. I've got parts on the way including a gasket and bolt set. The set I've ordered looks a lot like the one linked below. I know what most of those gaskets and o-rings are for but it would be a big help if someone could tell me what some of the ones shown in this picture are:
2001 Ford Focus Head Gasket & Bolt Set for L4 2.0L ( 8th Vin Digit P) at 1A Auto.com

In particular, the items inside of the blue valve cover gasket on the left hand side. There are 6 o-rings, one other different sized o-ring, one rubber band looking ring, and 3 grommet looking things at an angle in the middle. I'm not sure what they are.

It has the main parts listed but everything else is under "Miscellaneous other gaskets & seals".

Moved to the SPI Performance section for more looks from people familiar with the engine rebuild. Won't get lost here in multiple general threads & it's a better location than engine/trans. swap.

Well, I've called the company I ordered my rebuild kit from and asked for a full parts list with quantities and I was told "typically mechanics buy these kits and they know what all this is for" (subtract some self-esteem). Ok... I'm certainly not your average buyer then :( I'm not a mechanic nor a focus guru like some of you guys, just an average joe software developer who can read a Haynes manual. I hope someone can help. The six o-rings look like the o-rings used on the injectors (2 per injector). But, the fact that there are only six of them makes me think they are for something else and maybe for a part I'm not even replacing.

By the way, I plan on videoing the entire rebuild and posting on youtube for your entertainment. I can guarantee some comedic value from my inexperience in the videos, so maybe that will buy me some assistance? Please?

Thanks for reading guys!

Go to a parts store that has Felpro HS9539PT-1 and ask them to pull it out. Felpro commonly marks on the outside of the box what each and every gasket or O-ring is, it helps to tell if all parts are present when someone brings the box back for a refund. I used to have to run those lists all day long and then nail the customer when they swore all parts were still in there, it was common for people to steal one or two parts from the set to then return for a refund saying they didn't need it. Yeah, rriiiiiiight...........
