Inline equipment adapting, overly complicTed?

Hey, excuse me If this is a basic or silly question but...
I have a fluval 406 so of course ribbed hoses, now I have looked at many post about converting to vynel etc.
Iím wondering why it isnít possible to just get the adapters from fluval, cut the filter hose and out those two on and then attach the adapters to inline diffuser (or other inline equipment for that matter)
Can anyone discuss this with me?

Some info is here on another forum. The Fluval ribbed hoses cause a lot of turbulence, slows the water flow and gets clogged in the ribs.
