Does anyone have a similar setup and any suggestions? I am a level under extreme novice with this stuff. If it isn’t plug and play, I’m not good at fir hurting it out.

You don't need the Connect to send sound to the ceiling speakers. All you need to do is select the Connect Amp that they are wired to in the Sonos app. Play music stored on your device or from a steaming service
If you want to send TV sound throughout your home in the absence of a Sonos Playbar/Playbase/Beam the TV must send audio to your Marantz (i.e. via RCA or optical). You can then group the Connect Amp(s) of choice and the Connect (connected via RCA-in) to hear the TV audio. There may be a slight delay.
Note: All Connect Amps and the Connect must be named in the Sonos app as independent rooms (zones). Also line-out should be set to auto.
If none of the above helps then you may have still have IP Address conflict. Not uncommon in a Wi-Fi setup. Since you did not setup your Sonos I'd strongly urge contacting your installer so they can take your network down and setup everything properly.
