I have an insert woodstove I want to put in my brick fireplace.The chimney is 12" clay and about 16' above the damper.The vent is 4x15". I'll use an adapter for liner pipe. What size pipe?

Rectangular vented insert. Must be a old gal? Fill us in on what make/model insert you want to install.

I forget the brand,it has a fan underneath the firebox that blows hot air out of 2 vents on the front beside the doors.It also has 4 round chokers, 2 small ones on the top of the doors and 2 larger ones on the bottom of the doors.

Round chokers? Do you mean air supply knobs/caps? Many old stoves equipped like that are well beyond what your homeowners insurance will cover if that is a concern. Something to maybe look into. Get us a few pics if you get time. Always fun to check out stove's.

Installing a stainless insulated flex liner is a great move for safety and efficiency. Most modern EPA approved/UL listed stove's run on 6 inch diameter venting. Many old school stove's ran on 8 inch. Something else to consider when investing in a liner.
