is your air stone a wooden one? i can't tell from the picture? Yes the pump strength effects the skimmer, they have to be within correct gph rated for the skimmer. Not familiar with your brand, but if it came with it, its probably fine.

The collection cup definitely needs to be above the water line. It generally takes a couple days to a week for a skimmer to break in and really get the foam going to the top.
