Return air duct verses fresh air intake.
There no such thing as "Return air duct verses fresh air intake". You must have both.
Questions about preferred way to insulate bare metal, between where the flex's insulation stops and up to the collar at plenum? In the picture, flex comes from the R; Collar / plenum is to the L.
Have foil back duct insulation - can use.
At the collar (using loose duct wrap), should the insulation be zipped - only? Or taped to collar, then zipped?
On this El, should the end of flex insulation be zipped against the El,
then overlap the duct wrap - several inches ? past the end of flex insulation?
The flex insulation or liner won't reach the collar, completely covering elbow (if that's what U mean). Flex insulation stops at red line (in 1st picture).
*Plenum on left (pretend)
* Green towel = foil backed duct wrap
* # 1 = flex insulation stops on El
* # 2 = duct wrap butts against plenum
* # 3 = seam where duct wrap overlaps flex insulation.
# 1: Use clamp, or tape, or both - end of flex insulation on elbow? [liner already sealed]
# 2: Clamp, tape or both - duct wrap at plenum?
# 3: How, or if to seal the seam between duct wrap & flex covering? ? Use wide foil tape, or...?
Peel back the outer liner and cut inner liner shorter than the insulation. After the mechanical connection and taping the insulation is pulled around the elbow.
If you do not have enough length to redo the connection just buy some R-6 or R-8 trunk insulation and wrap it around the elbows, tape it with aluminum foil tape.

Why return duct is always larger than supply?
Manual D requires airflow to be designed based on Velocity (700 fpm on supply trunk 600 fpm on supply branch ducts 500 fpm on return ducts and 250 fpm across a filter)
This dictates the return will always be larger than the supply.
For instance a hard pipe 18" duct will deliver just over 1200 cfm at 700 fpm but you need just over a 21" pipe to deliver the same amount of air at 500 fpm.
