If i had a fuge with chaeto would that eliminate the need for a protein skimmer?

In my opinion, a fuge and a skimmer really do different things. A fuge with cheato will certainly absorb some nitrates. A skimmer removes dissolved organics (in theory) before they break down. In a 29, unless you are very heavily stocked, you shouldn't NEED a skimmer at all. Water changes are the best way to manage nitrates and replenish trace elements in my opinion.

I agree, but skimmers and fuges are VERY helpful. They clear water up, but with enough water changes, the tank will be clear. Heres a great link.
