There really isn't a heater control valve. The coolant flows through the heater core at max pressure and temperature is controlled by controlling the amount of air flowing through the heater core.

If you bypass the Heater Core on a 1997 V8 Ford F150 what will the consecuenses be?

If you bypass it correctly you will just no longer have any interior heat. Simply disconnect the heater hoses and connect them together. Connect the Inlet hose & Outlet hose going to the heater core together using a connector that you can purchase at most auto parts stores. By doing this you are simply routing the coolant away from the heater core. WARNING: Do not plug either of these hoses!!!!
