I made a diagram with the setup I had in mind as well as my questions are all on there

PatchBay Setup : Questions.jpg


1- Is the diagram setup correctly?

2- What setting should the patchbay be on for this setup? (Parallel, Half-Normalled, Normalled, or Open)

3- Effect 1 - Has stereo ins and stereo outs so I could connect the 2 outs into the patchbay aswell as the 2 inputs but Effect 2 has only 1 input and one output so would i need a Y-cable when setting it up or is there another way?
