Top pics show 2 skimmers. A hang on back style and a Berlin skimmer. I don't see a pump for the hand on back skimmer. The bottom set of pics shows the pump for the Berlin. It gets hooked to the intake tube on the right side of the skimmer. The blue airline attached to the pump stays above the waterline to allow the pump to draw air. It looks like you have it oriented correctly in the sump in the middle set of pics.

The clear box attached to the sump in the 2nd set of pics is the overflow. It goes on your tank and gets connected with a pipe or hose to the sump. It's how water gets from the tank to the sump.

The far right side of the sump looks like the area your return pump should go, but I don't see a pic of it.
