Question California Letter in ERAS

How can you send your PTAL to programs ? As a LOR ( I mean
Instead of a Lor , since there is a limitation for them ) ?

PTAL should be sent as LoR and it should take the place of one of your LoRs when you apply for California programs. So 3 LoRs and the fourth one is California letter.
Also check the box that indicates "This is a California Applicant Status Letter"
