This site has some info on pulling some fuses but I don't have any fuses in those locations does this just have bad info? Specifically the PCM BATT and PCM IGN

In 1995 they moved the PCM BAT fuse to the under hood box. Fuse locations are also shown in the Owner’s Manual - free download from GM website.   Panel at end of dash has a label on the cover.  Ditto with the underside of the cover for the convenience box under hood.  Free download of 1995 factory service manual, courtesy of GaryDoug:

Alright but are those other fuses that are shaped different supposed to have fuses in them? What sort of fuses would go in them?

What do you mean by the other fuses that are shaped different? Are you talking about the under hood fuse box, or the ip fuse box?

Those are not for fuses.  Those are spade lugs where you can obtain switched or unswitched battery power for an accessory.  They are protected by an adjacent fuse. 


You can see them in this schematic of the 1995 ignition switch, courtesy of Shoebox:
