NPT is not inherently leak free, it ordinarily requires some form of tape or goop to form a good seal and there is plenty of opportunity to mess up by over-torquing. Stay with cylindrical threads if you don't have a very good reason to use conical threads.

Any hydraulics shop should have all the bits you need on the shelf, so just buy a sandwich with thermostat, a fresh oil cooler and bring the parts to them for them to decide on dimensions and fittings.

Gordon's comments on the remote oil filter may apply to your choice of parts, personally I can live with the default filter placement. A slight bit messy when changing filter but in terms of accessibility it is almost OK. I have seen worse.
