Exhaust fumes flow from the engine to the egr,so you are going to see smoke there with the engine running.
The leak is either from the round clip on the egr or the egr to manifold gasket.

no the intercooler pipe should be clean, the exhaust would be coming from the smaller diameter pipe entering the EGR, on the left hand side.

If there is smoke coming from the large intercooler pipe its probably from the crankcase via that small pipe that joins into the intake snorkel.
