You couldn't match the flow properly. Rather than over-complicate and over-think this just run them separately. If there are no openings that could work for the FX5 you could drill holes in the euro brace to achieve this. Holes along the back of the euro brace are common, so minimal sized holes shouldn't create any structural problems.

The current holes are drilled in the bottom. How difficult would it be to drill holes in the back? Also if I drill can they both return through the same line or should I have a separate return?

Separate return. Drilling acrylic is easy, but go through the top. It can handle it better than going through the back. Just use the holes for the FX5 tubing to go through as if it were on a glass tank, no special plumbing.
