You talking a trickle filter? They work okay if you get the right stuff.

I didn't make one but I use a wet/dry in my 150, there is no better biological filter as one that utilizes oxygen.

My tank has built in overflows so I don't use a overflow box but this link gives you the idea, the water runs down into the sump and is pumped back into the display tank using a pump its really simple to be honest.

Depends on the size of your sump and what you put in it.. If you buy a pre made sump it could run you hundreds but I have seen many home made systems made out of $40 worth of stuff from Walmart. YouTube wet/dry filter or DIY sump.. It will get your brain bubbling and you'll see it's pretty easy.
