Where do you connect the thin bottom hose from the coolant reservoir on a 1992 Mercury Capri not the one that connects to the top of the radiator?

Actually, this is an overflow hose. The hose shouldn't connect to anything. When the radiator warms up the fluid level in the reservoir tank may rise. If it gets too high, then the coolant will pour out of this overflow hose. If this is happening too often, you may have a blockage in your radiator.

Why would a brand new radiator be leaking lots of cooolant and smoke coming from under the hood?

I would start with checking all the hose clamps and hoses to make sure they are properly tightened and not damaged. Also check that the thermostat housing is not leaking along with the water pump. Especially if any of these were replaced when the radiator was replaced. Also check to see if drain cock is closed. Also make sure the overflow hose is correctly routed to the overflow tank. You might just have to run the engine and open the hood and see where the leak is coming from. Good luck.
