Is there a preferred positioning for a HOT protein skimmer and a heater in my tank. Should it be in the middle or is one of the ends ok. Also in terms of Powerheads, where should they be positioned in the tank? Is there any diagrams on the web on this?

Because its dependent on the animals and how the tank is decorated, there is no diagram that I am aware of that is a "basic guide". Every tank will require something different.
