If I now understand you correctly you want to go from an 80mm blowhole fan to a 120mm. And you also want to add a 120mm fan in the front where the LCD used to be. That sounds like it would get you much better cooling.

As for a really simple mod yet will improve you case’s looks dramatically is painting the inside.

Wow those fans are two completely different animals. On is 65db 220CFM the other is 38db and 80CMF. If you are asking which is better between the two you need to decide whether you want high flow, high noise for great cooling, or mid flow mid noise for decent cooling. Or did you mean you are going to use both fans?

Whooaa, Cowboy.

220 cfm. You will hate that fan.

I have 104 cfm Panaflos, and at full speed, I can hear them over my gaming headphones.

Add more fans, not 1 big bad fan.

A few thoughts..
1. Cutting out all those tiny holes or making 1 big hole will improve air flow.
2. I know that 2x80 front fan config. and it's a pain. Considering #1, tear down the entire case and cut a 120mm hole in the front lower and do the #1 suggestion all at the same time.

You be glad you did!

Those pics were of the bottom of your case correct? If so then you would need to boost the case up off the floor a bit to get good airflow through those intake holes. That is why you don't see bottom fans too much. I would cut out an intake in the side of your case for at least 1 120mm fan, more 120mm fans or a 250mm fan would be even better. All you have to do is:

1. Trace out the inside of the round 120mm fan where ever you would like it.

2. Mark out the four holes for mounting the 120mm fan/s.

3. Using a dremel tool at max RPM's and a heavy duty cutoff wheel; cut out the area you traced of the inside of the 120mm fan on the side of the case. drill out the four holes for the 120mm fan. Screw or bolt the fan in place blowing into the case.

The guards for those fans are useless and cut out much of the air flow, cut these out.

I have a similar case to yours, and one of the first things I did was cut out the 80mm fan's ad put 1 120mm fan in their place.
