B747 and B767s are supposed to be using exact same GE CF6 engine, and as such their components are interchangeable including inlet cowl as they show to be effective in the IPC.

However some of the 747 cowls have this tapered cone on them:

That I have never seen on a 767-300s cowls. What is the function of that cone and what is it called?

That cone is a fairing for a smooth transition to the pylon as shown above (both CF6 on 747-400).
