Putting the eggcrate lighting diffuser underneath the substrate is quite popular in rock scapes, helps protect the bottom of the aquarium from impacts. If you can, as far as placement, have a helper. Be especially mindful of the dramatic and instant weight difference when bringing a rock up through the water surface. In regards to keeping the rocks where you want them, unfortunately I have no extra tips other than making sure gravity works for you, rather than against you.
