I don't think I will make a sump I'm just frustrated with my skimmer and thought it was the constant water level that changed it

You don't need to drill the return. You can swap them when you do a water change so the water line in the tank is low. Then drain water from the wet/dry filter pull it out and put the sump in.

Good idea and the skimmer isnt producing a foamhead it did once yesterday but the skimmate looked like cloudy water and I cant seem to get another one going maybe its because my tank is only cycling

Very possible the tank may not have much for it to filter yet since it is so new. How long has the tank been running?

That might be why there isn't much for it to take out at that point. You might want to turn it off until you finish your cycle.

why do you need to drill a hole in the line? simply unplug return pump, et the water drain until it stops, then pump water out of wet/dry into a storage bin, replace with new sump, pump water from container back into sump.... plug return pump back in... tada... sump installed.

So does filter floss act the same way as a filter sock? I want to get some sock but where would I put it in my sump?

Yea it is very similar it collects debris. Depending on your sump you can add it to the drain in the filter.
