I've seen people use stacks of CDs or magazines.

You do not need a bubble trap before the refugium. Just after. Just razor blade the first partition out. I would move the partition that's up off of the bottom in the return side also. I would want that about an inch away from the partition before it, and about an inch off of the bottom.

Yes. Move that one that's up in the air to the other side of the one that's down. Then remove the other one completely, or at least move it closer and lower it some. 1" from the bottom and 1" away should be good.
So, trying to explain this better- first partition sits on tank bottom, second is moved to 1" off the bottom, and 1" away from 1st, and 3rd either is not used, or can be sitting 1" away from that one, and on the bottom.

How does that look for a bubble trap?

That should work. The partition far left in the pic is not necessary. Can you fit a return pump in the last section? You are definitely going to need an auto top off for that sump or your pump is going to run dry. All evaporation will be seen in that little return area.

Ya I don't know why that's there.. There's one on both sides of the fuge... I'm going to the city next week to look for a pump and everything else I need, If I can't find one that will fit I'm just going to reorganize the bubble trap a bit.

How would I make something to automatically top it up? Could I just get a second smaller pump and pump water directly from where the water comes in straight to the return area? Or would that cause problems not going through the fuge and bubble trap?

Here's the home made live rock in my tank (: I added vinegar so it sped up the soaking process. I'm actually pretty proud of it (:
