What would cause a white frothy foam coming out of the PCV valve which is brand new on a 258 I6?

If the vehicle is subject to nothing more than just short trips, then this would be normal. It would also cause accelerated engine wear due to corrosion. What you are seeing is condensation mixed with some of the oil/residues inside the engine. Remove the oil cap, and the underside should be just covered with the same. Take the car for a run of about ten miles, and check the condition again, while the engine is still warm. If the condition remains the same, you may have bad intake, or head gasket(s).

The feed check valve of a boiler is on the line coming out of the boiler it is usually to prevent the water from going back in to the boiler its coming out of so it would build up excessive amounts of pressure which will cause the t&p valve to blow temperature and pressure

Depending where the noise was coming from, but this question is most likely to be answered in this way. If you switched a valve off and the noise was coming before the valve in the pipes, that would indicate a burst pipe.
