Should the media cartridge be placed closest to the tank or towards the back of Emperor 400? Also can the cartridges be used as a complete replacement to the Rite-Sized cartridges? Are there any good locations to get information on different setup combinations of Media Cartridges, Rite-sized filters, etc. ?
It all depends on what type of fish you have, your maintenance routine, and so forth. In general, the media containers are in the front, with the cartridges behind. Some folks use 4 cartridges and no media containers. Some fill media containers with biobeads, polyfil, ammo chips, carbon, peat, you name it. It all depends on what your filtering needs are, and what type of fish you are keeping.
