Yes UVB doesn't penetrate the water much. The UVB light should be place directly over the basking dock. Heat is also necessary for the proper use of the benefits of UVB.
One of the easiest and simplest setups is the canister filter. It sets below the tank cabinet with two hoses to the tank. An overflow box is not required.

They don't really work with freshwater tanks because of the difference in density between salt and fresh water.
A surface skimmer or overflow box is used to remove the oily film and protein rich surface layer of water from a tank.
They are usually used with a sump system, although Fluval and Ehiem make ones to fit onto the inlet of a canister filter.
