I'd get the hardscape out whilst ur still deciding and maybe get some section dry started... (cover plants with large clear containers). :3 you can certain get some moss on driftwood dry started on rocks or even before you put the DW in! moss grows fairly quickly emmersed.

Look at homedepot in there lighting section. The shop/work lights they sell there will help you achieve high lighting. They sell a fixture that is 4 48in T8 lights which is DAMN bright

That first link looks good.
I'd stay away from t-8 if you are doing a highlight tank. I cant seem to find anything in a good enough wattage for my one tank running t-8 to move to highlight without changing over to t-5HO.

Also, that corallife link you posted looks like it would work well.
