1. Should I install the tube at the end of the firebox with the damper on it, or at the other end (the opening to the smoking chamber)? I could make cases for either side and want to know if it makes a difference.
You do not wat the fan in the smoking chamber.. It is designed to provide air to the hot coals to regulate temperature.

I mean, won't the external fan's exhaust into the firebox kick up a lot of ash, and maybe transport that ash into the smoking chamber?
Although I do not have a CharGiller, you can slightly raise the charcoal grate to allow the air between the ash pan and the coals.
