Then I will have a 1 bulkhead gravity feed back into that final chamber (return right next to my return pumps). Think it will work? This is my first tank, ever.

It will work but you will have to raise your 10 gallon to make it over the top of the sump. You will also get drain noise (gurgalling). How do I know? I have the same setup but I tee my return to return a portion to the fuge then the fuge overflows via a 1" bulkhead into the center chamber right before the bubble trap and the output of the skimmer. Will take pic tonight.
