You would have to find the inlet and outlet hoses and put a fitting between them and hose clamp them together.
On the firewall, under the hood, you will find the inlet and outlet hoses.
Find inlet and outlet hoses under hood usually on the passenger side and disonnect them from heater and tie them together with a coupling and clamps
it is located behind the dash in the middle. you can get a better idea of its location by finding the core's inlet/outlet pipes in the MR2's front trunk.
It is called a Heater Core not Cord. It is located inside the vehicle mounted on the firewall on the passenger side. It is buried behind the dash components. If you raise the hood and look on the firewall, passenger side, you will see the inlet and outlet coolant hoses connected to the Heater Core.
Yes, you can bypass the core. Find the hoses to the heater core. Remove them from the core ... as a worst case scenario, cut them. Install a double male hose connector with clamps on the hose ends to complete the bypass fix. . mm
If you do have one, you will have a male plug to plug it into an outlet. If you can find no plug then you don't have one.
Find the two hoses that go to the heater core, usually 3/4 in. hoses, and connect them. It's very simple.

The common term used is Heater Core, not matrix. You change it by accessing it first which is the hard part. Changing it just involves draining the radiator and removing the inlet & outlet hoses, and then removing the heater core. The problem lies in getting to the core. All I can tell you is to remove enough parts to allow access. Be careful and do not break anything. Remember how you remove the parts and exactly where they go, so you can reinstall everything. A digital camera will come in handy, so you can take photos as you proceed. This is one of the hardest repairs to make on most vehicles, and that is why the labour costs are always expensive. Just find the inlet and outlet which will tell you the location of the core under the dash. Good luck.
It is probably right next to the water heater. There should be a shutoff at the floor, if not then at the meter is the most likely shutoff.
