All about that Sump!

Hi, I have been on a forum a little while now and I have gotten fantastic advice. I have a 60g that currently has a hang on filter. It has been running for about 7 months now. I am wanting to make a sump. I also have a 20g tank and the plumbing and pumps figured out.

I am wanted advice on what to put into the sump. I want to either separate it into 3 or 4 chambers. First the skimmer. If I do 3 chambers the second will be a Refugium. Then third will be return pump. If I do 4 I would just add some kind of filter media.

Is it ok to do both? If so, should it go filter media then Refugium or Refugium then filter media?

Any help is appreciated! Thank!
