Return fittings installation and sizing

I have 4 1.5” returns back to the pool.
3 returns are in series off one side of 2” T, and 1 return is sitting solo branched off the other side of T.
2 of the returns are positioned over a shallow shelf.
All returns are positioned to promote circular flow back to the skimmer.
I am wondering what size return eyeballs are recommended on the returns. Am I right in thinking the sizing logic is the same as AC ducting outlets, i.e. the further downstream the smaller the duct outlet?
Also, what is the preferred installation method. I see they have the slip glue option or threaded.
As always, any advice is much appreciated.

Trial and error, I’m good at that. 😆
Do you know which is more common, slip in or thread in?
