Need suggestions on my first aquascape

This is going to be my first real aquascaping attempt. My co-worker and I are trying to put this tank together. We saw a picture of a tank with a bonzi looking tree and want to try and create a similar tank.

Luckily, I had a piece of driftwood and found another that should work for the tree, but I have a few challenges that I thought I'd seek advice on.

1. How should I connect the two pieces of driftwood? If you look closely in the picture, a small piece on the top is different color and is a separate piece. I read that silicone might do the trick, but I wanted to see if anyone else has any suggestions based on their experience.

2. I wont have co2, but will be able to use excel. Does anyone know of a carpeting plant that I can use that is low to medium light? I forgot to check the specs on the light that came with the tank, but I'm guessing it's low-med light.

3. I ordered some flame moss to use put onto the driftwood. Do I just attach it like any other moss? I just want to make sure that the moss will grow upwards.

4. Any idea how I can secure the driftwood into one position? In the picture its just burred deep into the substrate and kind of resting against the rock, but it could easily get knocked over.

5. Any suggestions on the positioning of the rocks? I can't get the flow quite right =\
