Could set it up so that where your water comes in contains the skimmer...just put a ball valve on the inlet pipe so that you can reduce the flow if needed. Then that would open up your middle section for the refugium.

How large is this sump? You want to have low flow going through a fuge. I tend to agree with Shawn, see if you can put the skimmer in the first section, the fuge in the middle and the return pump at the end.
