That is to say, if I have 3 pumps stacked properly, and I am suppling excessive power to the middle of the three, will all three run? Or will the top or bottom not receive power?

If you've got things correctly stacked, it doesn't matter where you connect the power supply, because they're all stacked, and if they're stacked correctly, they are effectively only a single "machine"; Your should be able to query any pump on the stack and get the total power needed (generally 20 x Number of Screw Pumps + inefficiency from gears / axles (5 or 1 per tile, respectively)).
