Filter + Hood

This is probably a dumb question, I feel like I am missing something.

I am collecting accessories for a recently acquired 10 gal tank, including a hood and filter. All the power filters I see for a 10 gal look like they rest on the lip of the tank. Can you fit one of these filters with a hood?

For reference, I am looking at the Aqueon 10 Power Filter and the Perfect-A-Lite incandescent 20" hood. I am not married to these but am wondering if / how to use a hood like that with a filter like that?

I think some have little doors already built in.
found a description of the hood, says "Hood has replaceable plastic backstrips which can be easily cut to accommodate heaters and filters."
so looks like you have to do it yourself with that one. plus side is you get to decide where everything goes

All the hoods I've seen have plastic pieces that you cut out of the back to fit the filter and heater.
