So this thing says it can do up to 800gph so if i get a pump that does 1000gph to pump it back up that should be good? With a valve to adjust.

I know because it will be pumping it back up that it will not be doing 800gph. So should i get a bigger one?
Sure , you can get that to work. You would T off the return line, with a line going back to the sump with the ball or gate valve on it to fine tune your return.
