Question Pond + Stream Setup?

Sorry for the Paint schematic.. I want to do something like:

It's a small setup, but I'd like to do a rather long stream... maybe 10 feet or so.

- What kind of pump would provide enough suction for that length; could I maybe do a 2 pump setup?
- What return tubing to use? PVC piping or plastic hose?
- I want to use some dirt in the stream capped with gravel and sand, thinking of burying the return tube/pipe. SS mesh or sponge on the return intake?
- Anyway I can fit some biomedia in this setup? I'm thinking some biomax on the top of the waterfall area.

Good idea / bad idea? Improvements?
