Outlook 2013 - Is it possible to run the Blocked Sender list against the Inbox moving "hits" to the junk folder?

I have a workstation with Outlook 2013 (not Office 365) with no exchange.  After a system crash we were able to restore the outlook.pst file (there is only one profile and one PST) yet lost the Rules since they were not exported prior to the crash.  There are (were) very many  rules.  Questions:

1) Do you know a way to take just the PST file and get the rules out of it (or) get the rules functioning within it, if all you have is the PST file?
2) If not, as I manually go thru the inbox and mark a message as "Block Sender" is there a way to run those "blocked items" thru the inbox moving messages from that blocked sender to the junk folder?   Similar to  the option that's available after creating a new rule?  

What I do not want to do is create a new rule for every one of the blocked senders to move the message to the junk folder.  We are talking roughly 8,000 messages here.

Hello Admin,

As far I know, restoring Outlook rules is only possible if you may have taken backup of it prior. Generally, rules are the part of PST file so it is not being created by Outlook separately. In short, you have to create new rules to accomplish the task.
