dlaczego nie możemy powiedzieć "znajduje się" w tym zdaniu?

Does "na lewo strone" work? Are anything resembling this using the word "na" or "nad"?

"Na lewo od (czegoś)" could potentially work, but one should indicate what is that thing the port is on left.

Can you say, "port jest na lewej stronie?"

No. "na lewej stronie" is used for clothes which are inside out.

When would i use po rather than w. Does "w lewej" sound strange?

In a proper context it may be okay. Here, it doesn't work. "w lewej stronie" doesn't make sense to me.

But "w lewej szufladzie" (in the left drawer) is perfectly fine.

Generally, to say "on the left (side)" you can either say "po lewej stronie" or "z lewej strony".
