Default Replacing composite/polymer valve cover with aluminum cover DOHC

I have a question. I currently have a warped composite valve cover on my 1996 SC2 1.9 DOHC and am replacing it with an aluminum cover. My problem is that the new cover has 4 bolt holes in the middle of the cover and my current application on the vehicle has 3 bolt holes. All other bolt holes match up on the cover. Is it possible to plug the "empty" bolt hole or will it not be a problem? Oh, and is the torque setting still 89 inch-lbs with the aluminum cover? Should I use a preformed gasket with some rtv or just rtv?
