This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Yes. I suggest getting a PPO is the most efficient process for a temporary removal. There will be a hearing and he can go to court and state why he should not be removed from the home. If the judge agrees with him, then he will be permitted back into the home. But in the meantime, your Mother would need to file eviction proceedings.
So your Mother will need to hand him a written 30 day notice to vacate to start the eviction. She can do that before she files for the PPO or after it is served.
After he has been given the 30 day Notice to vacate, if he does not, then she can go to court and get the documents need to begin eviction. When she applies for the PPO she needs to state that she is in fear of her safety and well being. She should be prepared to give examples of how he is threatening and she can state she believes he is cooking meth in her home and why.

You can mail it to him, if you believe he will accept the mailed letter. And the letter can simply say something to the effect of This is a 30 day Notice to Vacate the premises of ADDRESS. A failure to do so will result in an eviction filed against you.
If it is mailed, it should be done certified with a return receipt requested so that you can show he received it. Otherwise, if you are concerned for your safety, I suggest you can get the PPO and then ask the sheriff or other local law enforcement to "stand by" while the Notice is handed to him.
You can make it a 7 day notice to vacate under Michigan law here at this LINK under (d)
Your Mother also can use this form and she can check "other" and state that she does not want him there any longer because she is concerned for her well being.
That form will allow her to mail it first class and then attest to the same in front of a Notary.
