    There used to be a couple of threads showing how to make adapters......Here's one, with pics.

    Most of us who are doing the hard plumb are using 1-1/2" PVC.

    For your suction lines, you could even go 2", if you have long runs to your pump. My own experience is that 1-1/2" is quite adequate for both suction and return. I've put two returns on my pool, and get a fairly quick moving whirlpool in a very short time.
