All PAL Express and Air Philippines flights operate at the new Manila NAIA Terminal 3. Philippine Airlines uses NAIA Terminal 2. So, not sure exactly which airline you mean when you say "Philippine Air".

A yellow taxi is the quickest, cheapest and easiest way between terminals. But if you are going from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1, traffic can get bad so it could be 15minutes (depending on many things including weather, etc).

From scheduled landing time to scheduled departing time, I would want at least 2hrs to allow for bags, lines for taxis, transfer time, lines for security. That does not include allowing time for the domestic flight to be late (which is not unheard of). It it was me, I would be choosing a 3hr time to allow for problems as missing an international flight is a PITA, but YMMV.
