What I do when I build a box that is both is drill and screw the MDF to the fiberglass and then put a few coats of resin over the seam to make sure there is a good seal.

the resin will get soaked in the mdf, but after its soaked apply another layer then glass it with some more resin :)

MDF is VERY porous. Will not be an issue :)

yeah the glass will stick to the resin without a problem. you dont need to screw it in.
