IP phone over a FXO line


im having some issues trying to connect a cisco 7960 to my communication network, im using a cisco router 1760 series with 2 E&M cards, and a 4 port FXO card, without the phone the network is working perfect. 
what I need is to connect the ip phone through the ethernet port on the router, and receive calls from the 4 lines connected on the FXO card. also, In the ip phone I need to select a line from which I would like to call from the FXO. So, each port from FXO, need to be paried directly to a line on the ip phone. ( SEE ATTACH FOR DETAILS)

I have already read about trunk-group, or PLAR, but I really dont understand how exactly I paired each line on FXO directly to the phone, I know its of easy but Im stuck in this. Thanks a lot for your help.

What is acting as the call processor for the phone?  CallManager? CME?  The answer will help determine your solution.
