Smile red sea 34 gallon?

i'll be moving in a few months and i am scraping this tank and giving the remaining livestock to my lfs, when i am at my new home i will purchase a red sea max 34 gallon reef aquarium. does this tank require a sump or something because i see that the filtration system is really good on the website and the lights are also good. also, how many pounds of live rock would i need for this tank? and how long do have to wait for it to cycle? when i am done cycle can directly add corals? i am repeating these questions because i really messed up on my first reef tank because i just followed my own steps and the advice the fish store gave me. and what's the best salt mix that you recommend? and what's the best fish/coral store in the bay area?

A lot of people do sumps but then a lot of people don't myself I don't but I did change the skimmer to the tunze 9002 and added the intank cup on it along with the media basket as well

I have a RSM 34 just got it a week ago. When to the store to test my water and it was all good. I'm a beginner. I already have a damsel in the tank. I was told if I add a refugium I can put more fish. Is that true? I wanted to drill into the back and add a refugium. What are anyone's thoughts?
