The wire colors aren't necessarily correct, but that diagram will do what you want.

Ok, but which ground wire are you talking about? All the ground wires should go to the back of the volume pot.

Thats the ground wire from the bridge. Its what grounds the bridge and strings. Assuming your guitar has a trem of some type the ground wire from the bridge will be soldered to the trem claw.

I'd use 500k. 250k will probably be too dark for the humbucker. If you use 500k the single coil might be too bright, but you can just dial the tone back on it.

Your preference though, if you do 500k and don't like it, its not hard to change. Pots are cheap.
