That's really weird cause concrete should never be dusty after its mixed. I mean, you add the water, it should be "wet" for probably about 2-3 hrs, it gets hard, and that's it, should never be dusty.

I'm just guessing here, but even though it won't actually glue it, you will probably get the best seal between the two using silicone.

I haven't seen one like that, but I did see one where a guy attached his light fixture to some sort of hinge in one corner so that he could turn it out of the way when needed.

Using it with an overflow would give you much better surface skimming. That's the one thing I didn't do with mine that I really wish I would've done.
