Default Obsidian 1000D RGB and Fan wiring help

Could someone more experienced and with more knowledge make me a diagram picture thingie for how everything is conected.

Needed in diagram:
What fans should go to what rgb fan led hub and commander.
how to chain everything that can go in a chain.
Different colors for different cable types.
Legend so i know what color is what.

can i put commander ontop of eachother or will they be too hot for that to be smart?

Can i get ahold of extension cables for the fans and their rgb lightning that doesnt cost like 10bucks a cable or should i just place the commanders in the closest spots?

I cant get ahold of the y header cables as they are out of stock everytime i check.
This is the items that i have and can use:

18 LL120 fans (16 in the front 2 in the back)
3 LL140 fans in the top.
3 Commander Pros (included the one preinstalled in case)
3 RGB Fan Led Hub (included the one preinstalled in case)
2 2080 Waterblocks with rgb lighting (Has input and output so can be used in chain.
1 i9 9900KF waterblock with rgb lighting (only one cable for rgb no chain thingies)
1 XD5 RGB pump/reservoir (input and output for RGB and one 4pin pump connector cable)

Motherboard : MSI Z390 MEG ACE
I want a diagram as im having a hard time following text guides and its so much easier to do it in the actuall case with a diagram. I know there are plenty of similar diagrams out there but i cant understand where to connect the stuff that i have thats not in those builds so thats why i need this aswell.

Edit: I will need to buy some more stuff for sure but a diagram would be useful so i dont buy to much stuff
Edit 2: will this work or did i just waste one hour?
Edit 3: Looks like my diagram would work!

Thanks in Advance!

Your diagram would work ... but you can use fan splitters and/or PWM hubs instead of a gazillion Commander Pros (sorry Corsair).
You can also make your own cables - see my signature for details.
Please click "Edit System Specs" and fill out your system info.

Thanks for the idea Devbiker! I'm planning on doing a 1000D LL Fans upgrade with water-cooling and having a lot of Commander Pros will cost an arm and a leg.
