I'm not sure I caught what the purpose of these two are.

The salt bridge or porous disk between the anode and the cathode allow cation/anion diffusion. This keeps both solutions neutral so that the reaction is able to continue.

Adding a salt bridge or porous disk allows ion transfer (two solutions stay neutral).

The adding of these instruments allows for the circuit to continue because there won't be a large accusation of electrons since the purpose of It is to pass ions from one end to another in order to neutralize

It is most important to know they allow ion transfer which helps maintain neutral solutions.

The purpose of a salt bridge/porous disk is for the ions to transfer and help maintain a neutral solution.
