Looks good. Yes, you are correct. So the "bypass" valve should be closed, and the valves to and from the tank should be open.
Pump noise, common complaint, it is primarily from vibrations. Few things you can do; Apply a little foam pipe insulation to the pipes near the water pump, primarily focus on the cold water outlet from the pump. This pipe can rattle up a storm. Another thing people have done is replaced a short section of the outlet pipe from fairly ridge pex to something soft, that does not transmit the vibrations. The pump, is securely mounted to the floor. Many people place something under under the pump to dampen the vibrations. Most commonly seen things is pink Styrofoam, industrial rubber backed carpet.
Pump Volume; that is also a common complaint. If the volume is great, you will drain your FW tank fast. Your volume should be around 2 to maybe 3 gpm, and the pressure is fairly low. On the pump there is a filter screen, the housing is probably a little smaller than a tuna fish can. Open it up and clean the screen. I clean mine every fall as part of my winterizing process.
