work with me huma, you seem good about thinking outside the box. what if the skimmer and the return pump chambers where side by side but water from the skimmer compartment was not allowed to enter the return pump chamber, what if the flow was made to go the length of the sump, 24" away from the skimmer then back the length of the sump then be able to overflow into the return pump chamber. there would be a divider of sorts running the length of the fuge section causeing the water to "U"
kinda like the picture only in one sump vs 2 joined together.

No, can't sleep, **** PTSD... Lol.... If u use PVC and a CPR overflow box to take the water out the dt to sump (reference my pic I sent earlier) cut slits in the PVC. DO NOT drill it. Have slits alternate down pipe. Pipe should be about 2-4 inches from bottom of sump. Have that water go over baffle to ur rubble. Hope this helps.

i dont see how that would reduce or remove the need for a bubble trap because of the skimmer.
