people who think that the tuning peg things have to be straight. I went to the bathroom once, I come back, and my friend detunified my guitar, and then asked why it sounded weird. ARGG!!!

You should put the chorus in the effects loop. And do you want a volume boost or a gain boost?

volume boost

so have the wah and over drive going in the "input" on the jcm and the chorus pedal and boost in the "effects loop"?

Well, a boost in the loop will basically affect the volume and hardly will affect the gain.

I run my Dallas Rangemaster-clone in front of my amp. Boosts the volume just fine. Gets more saturated, too because it's not a clean boost, but...A fatter solo tone works better for me, anyway.

Boost pedals generally have tons of gain on tap, like up to 30dB. Just don't think he should be shoving all that straight into the power amp, when it works fine up front.

I haven't thought of this - since it's definitely possible to boost the volume with MC-401, why don't you buy and try it in different positions and decide what you like best?
