I'll share my thoughts, and my thoughts are only my opinion based on years of experience.
1) I'd do everything in my power to keep my fuel pump submerged. FYI my 4303 (2,000hp as advertised) pump is submerged.
2) I'd do everything in my power to keep Fittings & Lines made by the same manufacturer.
3) Behind Bars makes great products and they have the real world experience to back it up. BBRC also can piece together whatever parts you want. For me personally I'd get Chris @ BBRC to piece together a kit to work with the Pro-M hanger. I'd also ask to use the 9950 regulator.
4) fluid displays many (not all but many) characteristics as Volt Amps when fluid is in laminar flow. If you run huge power wire to supply huge amps. You need equal grounding. If you want to run a big fuel pump, you need to be concerned with a large return to the tank.
5) and this part is highly subjective to only my opinion. I'd run the Pro-M hanger, large pump and work with BBRC to supply Lines, Fittings and the 9950 regulator. This would be the best (subjective) system at the lowest cost along with the simplest installation. A kit like that should have all my previous comments addressed.
6) and this one is only an option, but a suggested option. I'd run a 10 AWG line from my battery to the fuel pump. and use the factory fuel pump wire to trigger a relay for this new wire. Again line loss in electricity shares a few characteristics as line loss of fluids.
These are my opinions, but hopefully they help.
