Live Vocal Effects Chain (Guitar Pedals, Mixer, DI Box) Condenser Microphones

Live Vocal Effects Chain (Guitar Pedals, Mixer, DI Box)

Below is my soon-to-be setup for mixing effects into my live vocals. I need the the stamp of approval from some gear slut professionals before I put it all together and purchase the missing pieces.

Shure Beta 87A
into a Mackie 1202-VLZ (with Phantom Power)
use the AUX send to go to a BOOMERANG+ (with "Thru Mute" on)
and then send the output of the BOOMERANG+ into one of the many free inserts on the Mackie (instead of AUX return)

I have two options I am not sure about:
1. Send the MAIN output of the mixer to a Direct Box for the FOH
2. Send the channel inserts to separate DI boxes so the FOH has one track of main vocals and one track of sampled vocals

My overall goal is to avoid negatively effecting the main vocals even though I want to add a delay/sampled effect on a couple songs and also to not scare or piss off the FOH.

I would also like to add a couple more guitar stompbox effect units into the aux 2 send, but I want to start off simple.

Additional Notes:
I plan to take another output from the Mackie and send it to my Wireless In-Ear System to mix together with the Monitor mix sent from the FOH. (so that I have control over voice-to-band ratio)

I don't own a DI box, so brand/type recommendations are welcome.
