I'm not sure about which quadrant of the diaphragm (or whether diaphragm has any quadrants per say)....but its usually in the umbilical region as far as the abdominal quadrants are concerned.

Meckel's divurticulum is a part of mid-gut so the pain of meckel's diverticulitis should be experienced just like the pain of acute appendicitis. First to the umbilicus then localized to its position.
