I love my wet/dry.  The best way to set up a sump would be to use an overflow.
What kind of filter do you use now?  I'm not sure why you don't like the idea
of a trickle filter.  It's very effective filtration, and its really easy to
clean.   I just put up some info on my website about my DIY wet/dry.  One of
the things I like best about it is that my heaters, temp probe, and CO2
reactor are all in the sump, instead of being in the main tank.  Take a look
at http://www.csd.net/~cgadd/aqua.  There's a link to my DIY wet/dry.
