Confused about hood, blower, insert, etc for Bluestar range

I have a 36" Bluestar Platinum on the way ( YAY!!!!) . I need to get a proper hood set up. The plan is for a custom surround. I have noticed there are different set ups... First of all, it seems as though you can either buy the whole unit, blower, motor and all together OR the liner and blower motor, etc are sold separately as well. Also , there are external blowers that are in the attic and also blowers in the unit???

I am not sure what to get. I do know 42x27" 1200CFM is what is recommended ... Do I really need that? Rarely will I be using more than 2 burners at a time.

Any tips or recommendations would be appreciated!
