Words in the du’a to be recited when in need


I need to ask two clarification regarding the du’a of salatul hajah.

1- In the du’a, after “Subhanallahi rabbi al-arsh’il azeem” in one place I see “Alhamdulillahi rabbil ‘alamin” and in another place I saw that “Alhamdulillahi rabbil ‘alamin” was not mentioned after “Subhanallahi rabbi al-arsh’il azeem” and it went directly to “As’aluka mujibat rahmatik..” after “Subhanallahi rabbi al-arsh’il azeem”.

Please clarify if there are different narrations. If so, which one should I use.

2- At the end of the du’a, in one place after “illa qadhay’taha” I saw “Ya Arhamar Rahimeen” and in another place after “illa qadhay’taha” I saw “Ya Rabbal A’lameen.”

I don’t know if these phrases are even part of du’a or not or just the ending phrases after conclusion of du’a. If these phrases are part of du’a, please clarify which one should I use.
