Do you mind uploading CAD files? With the cooler I have, I can move it over to the right by 5mm to get it closer to the hotend

I have uploaded the SolidWorks SLDPRT file.

Which point in the assembly of the mounting brackets and such does this item get added? I am printing up the parts for this, as well as https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2473423 (40mm fan version) all at the same time to take advantage of the EZABL I just purchased.

You should assemble this sensor mount first, then assemble the hanging fan/part cooler.
EZABL? All I needed was a proximity sensor(I recommend a normally closed NC one), some resistors, some shrinking tube, solder a bit, change some parameters on Marlin and that's it, total cost: next to nothing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcGFLwj0pnA

Can you provide a link to the sensor you used?

This is the one I am using: https://www.gearbest.com/diy-parts-components/pp_1097405.html
But I recommend using a NC (normally closed) instead, if you can find one. With a NO if there is a bad connection it wont stop before crashing with the bed.
And if you don't use the glass, an inductive sensor will be more accurate and reliable, although I haven't had a single issue with my capacitive one.

Would this work with the dual fan version? I tried the default ABL mount provided by TH3D but the dual fan version is wider so it does not fit.

I have just checked both the stl files of the single 40 mm fan version I have and the dual 30 mm version and they are the same maximum width so you should have no problems.
