Piping up the jebao dcp-5000

What is the best way to couple the pump to my 3/4" return pipework?

I have hard plumbed down to the pump, then I was going to use flexible PVC clear pipe from pump to pipework (to reduce vibration), but how does all this fit together, what fittings do I need?

Does the clear PVC pipe just push into the Jebao coupling? does it need to be glued?

Those fittings should accept standard size PVC pipe which would need to be glued in.

Only pvc pipe goes into the fittings, not clear.
