rebuilding pool and have problem with installing aqua genie skimmers..

1. when sliding in wall skimmer goes 1/2" more inside than need (will not line up with liner) am i suppose to use some kind of spacer or they sent me kinda skimmer for walls with foam or something..

2. there's 2 holes bigger 2" pvc plug(for what is that) and smaller 1-1/2" to pump. I want use 2" pipes so.. am i suppose to use adapter 2" to1-1/2 or..... can i plug small hose and connect bigger 2"(suppose to be pluged) with pump??

3. there will be 2 skimmers maybe i should use 1-1/2" pipes instead 2" if skimmer has already that size hole
