You definitely need to upgrade filtration ASAP.

Look into running a sump, it will do wonders for your tank and you'll be able to keep your heater and skimmer in there and out of the display. That would be the best in my opinion...

How do I do that? I don't really understand a sump either. How do I make it run on my tank that is already established

I would look into a hob skimmer IMHO. I'm pretty sure reef octopus makes one for up to 110g. It would be easier for you than drilling an established tank and hob overflows are sketchy

Is a powerhead necessary for a 75 g tank?

Hob skimmers are pretty much plug and play, just a little bit of tuning to get the skimate how you want it
